i heard on here that if you remove pipe wrapping on the intercooler piping it makes the turbo whistle louder somehow, was wondering if i do this will it de-power my truck or affect it negatively in anyway
I bought a set of CAC pipes on ebay and soaked the foil in my solvent tank for a couple days, the foil and glue came right off. But...the shrill whistle from the turbo was pretty harsh in the cab so I put my original foil covered pipe back on after a couple days. Gonna sell this other set of CAC pipes now I guess.
"for some reason i didnt hear much more in the cab but i did outside of the cab while going down the road... "
Are you running a stock turbo? I have the Banks quickturbo and without the CAC foil there's a shrill whistle in the cab, enough to drive me nuts after one day going to work and back. This turbo / exhaust combo puts out a nice whine as it is so I didn't care about extra whistling outside the truck.
