    Newbie with a question

    well recently my '00 civic si was stolen/striped/dismantled... so, of course for my next car, I chose the 07 WRX TR. However, I'm very new with turbos. Until, I have some extra cash, I cannot modify the car...

    however I want to be able to hear the turbo. I heard there was a silencer I can take out... but not to sure... any info is appreciated.

    Greetings and welcome to the club!

    An Subaru SPT or Cobb short ram intake will make more turbo noise, but will likely not make any measurable power. I would recommend spending mod $ elsewhere.

    Do a search using "snorkus delete" and you will get all the info you need. I did the delete with the GP Moto elbow. That should be in the search results as well.

    Do not buy an aftermaket BOV for noise. There is a Big BOV thread all about this.

    Delete = remove the intake resonator.
