    Friends eclipse

    My friend just bought an eclipse GST, and his turbo is like frkn loud as hell, and I could barely hear mine on my 08 WRX?? whats up with that, he bought that car for $2500, and his mods are cold air intake, and some exhaust, which sounds pretty nice.

    How can i make my turbo sound a lot louder? a BOV? I dont think he has a BOV.

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

    it's his intake. I would recommend the K/N Typhoon Short ram or the SPT intake if you insist on having one. Others might make you run lean.

    That sounds like the bov. They're pretty loud from the factory in my opinion.

    I'm still going with it having a bov. They come with them stock from my experience. I'm not for sure though. I've had a few 2G's and a 3G.

    your car is stock and his is obvisouly not. get a tbe and an up pipe and you'll be able to hear your turbo more. if you want that whipping noise get an intake like said before, or you can get a bov but make sure its 50/50 or 100% recircualting.

    Incorrect. They all came with 100% recirculating bypass valves like every other stock turbo car made for under 30K.

    Can't go SPT because they won't release one...

    But do a little research and you can find one you like...

    I stand corrected. I apologize for the confusion.
