    Maybe you can get a pre-filter kinda thing thats very high flow, just to keep the worst of it out?I dont drive many miles either, but I wouldnt want all the crap on my air filter going through that nice motor of yours.

    Where did you hear about the stress? Curious thats all, since all the turbos I have dealt with, even huge ones (2.8inch inducer @65psi boost :)), all had filters.

    ive always heard that and have been told that. what size filters were those car's running? if you do run a filter on turbo its best to run a BIG one, like a good size K&N, but most turbo setups dont have much room to work with, so people end up running those small pancake filters, and being so small they dont have alot of volume in the filter it self causing stress on the turbo

    Look like you could fit one of those big cylindrical K&Ns in your setup

    Had a friend put a screen over his turbo on a GSR integra, the screen got weakened and then broke and got sucked up and destroyed his fully built engine. Might only be a Teg, but he put a ton of $ into it to be able to hit 375fwhp.

    I know ON3 were able to position a larger filter on the 2v setup, whats preventing this on the 4v?

    I drove 88 miles a day, 5 days a week for over a year with no filter and no issues. BTW the intercooler and turbo would stop any big items and rocks getting to the engine. I would not run one if you dont have too.

    The filters that were run on the turbos where created here, http://afepower.com/shop/custom/filter.php. That way you can taylor it to fit where you want it and flow too, pretty sweet but not that cheap (65 bucks or around there). However, neither are turbos.

    the 2v and 4v have different upper radiator hoses, the 4v runs closer to the inlet of the turbo

    Just get one of those screens that go over the turbo. Itll stop all the big **** from getting in.

    no, btw if invest the money on a k-member just do the whole thing. I can tell you this, there is only one turbo kit that I know of that you can run w/ the stock k member and its the "spyder turbo kits" Im not sure if they even make them anymore.

    every things pretty much done, just been doing so small stuff, for some reason i never received the "turbo support bracket" when i got my kit. but i saw pictures of it that people had posted and it look cheap and flimsy. so i made my own!
