I dont want an exhaust or any serious mods on my 300D...but i would really love if the turbo was louder. I guess its the wastegate? The whistle when te turbo spools up. How can I make that louder?;)

Install some other type of filter. Cone or otherwise. Not really recommended if longevity is a factor in buying your car.

Ditto. A cone filter will make more noise at the expense of filtering ability.

There really isn't an easy way to make it louder. The intake valves are so close to the inlet that the natural aspiration noise of the engine will always overpower the turbo whine.

haha^^ u guys are real wiseasses!

I only ask because I used to have a big turbo VW 1.8T, and i loved the sound of that turbo!
I dont even care to much about the BOV or wastegate, I just want to hear that baby spool up. That whistle is just amazing! I guess it is what it is though, and its not worth it. I dont want to change to mcuh around on a car that runs so great. If it aint broke

I have a decent sized HX35W in my Ram. It can be heard when the throttle is mashed but tops out at 18psi....it's weak at stock.....but has capabilities for much much more :D

The later HY35 would spool much better.
Agreeably the HX35 doesn't spool that fast. It takes somwhere on the order of 2 seconds to go from 3psi to 18psi with the TC locked in 4th.

I want an ATS Aurora 3000/5000 compound but we'll have to see how things go this year.
