DIY Intake question...

I put a 46637 filter in today and removed the airbox. I was wondering if leaving the air intake temp sensor unplugged will hurt anything...and i also have a custom made vacuum hose on my waste gate with a small hole in it for more boost (my friend hooked me up with it) i think it gives me maybe like 2 more lbs. I get a small turbo "blow off" sound when i shift and im wondering if that is boost going back through the filter???

Re: DIY Intake question...

Just zip tie the sensor to the nearest bracket, it won't hurt a thing. Can't speak to your other question.

No that sound on let off is not surge. Surge happens under load, surge is bad. That sound is normal. Actually I love that sound.

Re: DIY Intake question...

I do too i jut never heard it come through the intake with the stock box in it. I have heard of people with turbo cars blowing their filters out that why i was asking! I am suprised how easy it was to make that intake...

Re: DIY Intake question...

You do not hear much of anything on closed up stock or other sealed box. The way the filter is set in their it would be very hard for it to blow off not to mention with the amount of flow the pressure is likely quite low against it. Its only a stock turbo after all.
