Did installing the intake take care of the surging or is that a wastegate issue? Also before you put the intake in did you happen to try just a performance pa rl filter?

I think Iíll do a panel filter and AFE said they are working on a handheld tuner that I can swap back and forth if I have to take it in. Thank you for all the input.
You can also check out the AFE Scorcher, which is a sort of 'handheld tuner'.

I installed a K&N drop in filter and the turbo noise was definitely more noticeable, and throttle response seems a little better higher up the RPM's. https://www.amazon.com/engine-air-fi...4698904&sr=8-1

Doesn’t that have to be installed in the engine bay though with a bunch of wires?

You have to put wires through the firewall, and then zip-tie the "Scorcher" to your battery. I guess your concern would be if they saw it?

Pretty much yea. I really just want a little gain in performance without doing to much. I’ll wait for my toy for that.😳

Ok so I got my intake and I was removing the stock unit and the part that is attached to the turbo inlet won’t come off. I know they can get stuck over time but it is new. I will say that I tried to do it with a hot engine and metal expands when it’s hot so I’m wondering if I try when it’s cold if it will come off easier, especially if it’s cold out. Any thoughts?

Intake installed. I finally got the coupling off but it took some work. Sounds great, looks great, more intake and turbo sound as well as better response and pull in 3rd and 4th gear.

By any change did you have to remove the bumber to install that intake? I say that because the inflow is from the front grill like the Big gulp intake system which requires bumber removal.
