Default first impression with....

silencers removed> I hear a swosh kind of a sound when I take my foot off the gas pedal when pushing the RPM's? is this normal, and what is that I'm hearing. I can't believe how huge these silencers are ? the white and black "thing a ma gigs"> with as little room as their is under the hood, why use up valuable space on worthless parts? gear heads, talk to me, [:0]

Yes, this is normal. The noise you hear is the blow off valve redirecting boost pressure to the compressor wheel when the throttle closes. It is one of the joys of owning a turbo car. Believe it or not, some people might not want to hear this, thats why dc put them in.

ok, one more question/ both of these silencers don't seem to have any restriction for air flow. they just look like another avenue for the air to flow through, no filter, no obstruction what so ever in the port cavity. so how do they silence? just trying educate myself/ maybe over the weekend I will take apart my turbo to see how it works/ (kidding of course)

The same way that a straight through muffler quiets down exhaust noise. The air flow through, the sound waves enter the holes, bounce around and cancel each other out. This resonation does not hurt airflow in itself, we see gains by removing it because they force the engine to breathe through a smaller hole.

Ok, I have read about the silencers, one on the top and the other on the bottom. And I must admit, I haven't even bothered to look,yet... Just where in the 'ell are they located, so I can pull them and not let the boss knew I took them out? It's her Turbo Cruiser...
