    02 turbo air filter

    My 02 turbo has no air filter element in it right now. Do I need one? Am I maybe running too lean without it? I'm at least risking something hitting the turbo blades Anyone know where I can get one? Seems 02 are hard to source. Maybe a substitute?

    I just did an intercooler upgrade, which requires removing the stock intake. I used a K&N filter RU-1280 straight to the turbo intake and it works great. I also have the K&N "drycharger" pre-filter (RU-1280DR) over it to protect from any moisture splash. You should get faster spool-up even without any other mods. There are other cheaper options out there too for similar filter setups if you search forums.

    Thanks Jon, makes sense. Just ordered a RU-1280 with RU-1280DR. Cheapest route was Jegs for the filter, ebay for the sock.
