The LLY Turbo Mouth Piece has been a popular upgrade for Duramax enthusiasts since those trucks hit the streets in 2004. If you have been reading about them on forums, and on Facebook and don’t understand what all the hype is about, keep reading.
The factory turbo inlet, often referred to as the mouth piece. Is very restrictive, there’s a flaw in the plastic mold that created a wall that incoming air collides with. This restriction means the turbo is working way harder than it should to deliver the compressed air that the engine is desiring. These little inefficiencies will hurt fuel economy, performance and overall engine reliability.

An aftermarket air intake, with the upgraded LLY Turbo Mouth Piece is going to result in a huge increase in air coming into the engine. We need to ensure that air is getting out as fast as it’s getting in. If we don’t you will end up with higher drive pressure. Drive pressure is caused when more air is coming in, than going out.
