    Turbo Spooling

    Last night I was at a local meet, and I saw this black WRX drive into the parking lot. He must of kept it in first, and all you could here was the turbo spooling. It sounded really good. I am assuming that the up-pipe and downpipe brought up that sound. What mod is it that you can start to hear the turbo spool up like that? Its so badass.

    A TBE will help alot along with the removal of the air snorkal. It could have been an aftermarket turbo which are some times a good bit louder

    That plus the silencer hack will bring out lots of turbo noise.

    is not recommended but an aftermarket short ram intake will make ur spooling noise louder too....

    As long as u keep the MAF sensor in stock position and dont change the diameter of the piping an intake isnt bad nor good right? just get the nice louder turbo spool?

    Silencer hack=intake silencer delete=air snorkus removal. All very easy to do for some noise. The elbow replaces the part you remove. Not everyone replaces it with the elbow.

    I've got the TXS 4" downpipe and my turbo sounds great. Stock intake. Drives my wife crazy. "Listen! Hear that! Isn't that cool?" She's looking at me like:

    Unfortunately it also amplifies the wastegate at certain RPMs.

    Cool, so with a stock turbo I will be able to hear it. Is removing that intake thing safe for the car?
