Will driving through dust have any affect on a turbo or intercooler? I live about a mile down a dirt road and it's a dust storm.

Check your intercooler, if it's front mounted, and clean it with water if it's clogged... dat's about it - also frequently check your air filter - it'll get clogged faster especially K&N's...

what do u run for a filter, I personally don't run a filter on my car, if you have a filter just make sure it is clean check it periodically, if you don't have a filter say bye bye to that turbo.

I don't have a turbo yet. I'm planning to get the greddy turbo kit for my EP in a month or two. It uses a sponge type air filter. I have an Injen short ram, which I believe uses a K&N. I've had it on for about 6 months no problems, and I haven't cleaned it yet. Which will increase the longevity of my turbo the greddy airnx or k&n filter. I would assume the airnx intake will allow more dust to enter my engine. How often would I need to clean Monthly? Weekly?
