Nobody wants to end his or her day on the water with a sore throat from trying to talk above the babel of whining diesels. And although sound attenuation has come a long way since the invention of earplugs, anything that keeps more-than-necessary sound at bay is welcome.

To help reduce intake noise, Walker Engineering has developed a series of air filters called Everquiet that can be used on older MAN and MTU engines. Each filter in the series has a built-in silencer, the technology of which is being kept under wraps for now but is said to reduce and eliminate the wince-inducing turbo whine that occurs at certain rpm levels. The filter also uses a newly designed mounting clamp that puts an end to the need for a turbo connection hose.

Everquiet air filters are available through Walker dealers. Pricing information was not available at presstime.
