    You have two options (and can do both).

    1). Buy an SPT short ram intake for that louder turbo 'whoosh'.
    2). The Silencer-Delete mod aka Snorkus Removal

    Get the Cobb intake or the SPT intake. They will allow you to hear your turbo much more and wont really harm your car. Do you have any mods on it already? An uppipe/downpipe combo will also make the turbo louder.

    Search for "Snorkus Delete." It is free and doesn't harm performance on a stock car.

    Then search "Blow Off Valve or BOV." It is not free and does harm performance on an otherwise stock car.

    I dont think that the SPT intake will void the warranty seeing that its Subaru Performace Tuning, but I am not positive.

    I'm 100% sure that SPT products will not void your factory warranty

    it is not fine print it is a generic understanding that the only way a dealership will cover any aftermarket parts is if they install them so they can make the money, you might be able to get away with a SPT intake but if you want a 100% way to stay in warrenty then have the dealership install it

    To my knowledge, none of these exist, at least where I live.
