|en-tact||I have the German Turbo built too. When I replaced the manufacturer's air filter with a K&N filter, the turbo purr that was there is significantly quiet!|

|kzimmons||I have the german built one and the turbo is very noticeable when is spools. I have a tune that has increased the boost and a K&N "drop in" intake|

Anyone do anything to their car to make the turbo more noticeable?
RoyalRegal, have any pics of your setup? Did it make a difference? Do you have a BOV?

|Boosted||Would putting an intake on it void the warranty? Or would just dropping in a K&N be the best bet and would you hear the turbo more with just that? I have a HKS SSQV BOV laying around, so tempting to put on! I just don't want to mess with my warranty, once that is up its going all out!|

Do the Turbo Regals have a resignator on the intake, like the dmax diesels? I noticed more turbo sound when I pulled it off on my diesel. Of course its straight piped too

|TO3Regal||I can hear my turbo just fine. Esp with the window rolled down slightly. I do wish it was louder...|

|xcorba||The turbo is so quiet because of the air filter. My air filter also had another layer of something ontop of the filter its self.|

I've got the N. Amercian made car and can't hear the turbo.
I do hear engine knock under light acceleration...on dealer first tank of gas.

|royal_regal||I just just custom fab a CAI , with some 2.5" tubing and some couplings as well. As for a Turbo noise if its too quite.. just find a place to install a Blow off Valve , then you get the Turbo purge you guys want!|
