Re: New to Diesels

Or get the Green Diesel Engineering tune. It eliminates the swirl motor issue and gives great power all across the band. Im super happy with that and the black gasket intake tube.

He didn't heed the advice and his motor blew up at 61,400 miles and cost him 5 G to repair.

If I have an orange one where do I get this mythical black one?

Thanks for any input

You Ned to change the air inlet pipe as well you can't only change the seal to the black one

Air inlet with black seal is PN 53013672AE at dealership I think it's around 80 bucks. The other solution is the elephant hose mod
