What is a turbo resonator?
A turbo resonator is a plastic assembly used on the 5 cylinder in-line Mercedes Benz diesel engine. The turbo resonator is meant to lessen the intake sound of the turbocharger. It is also a muffling device for the intake air delivery system.
Why do I hear a whistle coming from my van after I install this turbo resonator?
The turbo resonator is made out of plastic? But I see the one listed here is made out of Grade-A aluminum?
That is correct, the original manufacturer’s turbo resonator is indeed made out of plastic. The plastic turbo resonator consistently melts inside of the Sprinter Van and leaves people stranded. The product you see here is indeed made out of aluminum and will not melt like the factory original turbo resonator in your Sprinter Van.

- While driving a car with a bad turbo/turbo resonator you may notice that your car may not accelerate quickly and does not reach its optimum speeds as quickly as it once did.
- Irregular or excessive exhaust
- Grey smoke or excessive exhaust is a sign that your turbo/turbo resonator may need to be replaced.

What happens when a turbo resonator fails?
When a turbo resonator fails the boost sensor sends a low-pressure signal to the engine’s computer. The computer then thinks there has been a failure of the turbo, making it go into “Limp Mode”. Limp Mode results in a total loss of ability for the Sprinter Van to climb hills as well as a maximum ground speed of ~35 MPH. Limp Mode typically forces your vehicle to be towed in for repair. The check engine light will also come on. You will certainly know when your turbo resonator fails.
