Default Main turbo tube

Does anyone know for sure about the inner piece inside the tube thats coming of the turbo? Is it a silencer or possibly some type of venturi?

It is just another silencer. The holes in it are a dead giveaway.

I can't get the darn thing open. I guess it is glued together. We just need to replace the entire tube to the turbo. I really want to keep a stock "look" so I am wondering if someone can come up with the ruber connectors and we can just run a metal tube that I can paint flat black to resemble the stock pipe.

Is there some trick to getting this tube off of the turbo? I was removing silencers, and was going to take a look at the one on the turbo inlet as well. I removed the clamp, but the tube wouldn't budge, and I couldn't really get a good angle on it to try to pry it off.

It's just stuck on there. The first time off is a little hard. It will come off though.
