Hey guys,
i was crusin around w/ my friend in his 3000gt VR-4 and i noticed how cool a turbo car sounds, i was fallin in love with the scream of those turbos and the woosh of the BOV...so anyway to get to the point, does the SRT's engine have any of that turbo noise? i know the exhause is rather loud and free flowing, so that should help right?

You'll hear it spool, when the psi's start hitting you get a great spin sound. At lower speeds, you will also hear the BOV. If you want more BOV sound, get the XS RFL BOV, IMO... LOL

the stock BOV sucks. any new aftermarket one would be a good upgrade.

If you shift like an old lady then you wont be needing a BOV:)

Actually once you raise yoru boost levels, the stock valve one be large enough to handle the larger volume of air. So you will need another BOV. Here is mine. I feel a difference with the boost turned up. But not at the stock 11psi.

I found a perfect way to increase the sound of the stock blow off. I've installed a manual boost controller, with it set at 15psi. The turbo spool and the BOV are about twice as loud as stock. I can barely even hear it stock, but I can definitely hear it now.

To make the spool and BOV louder in any turbo car, all you need is an open element filter/conical shape filter like the K&N, or injen. The blow off valve IS a performance modification. Once you raise boost levels the stock BOV will eventually leak.

Exhaust Depot: That HKS SSQV is going to get TORN up if you don't fabricate some sort of shield for it! It looks nice though, very clean.

Yup, just like he said. ANy open filter element will give you a louder induction sound. Its not worth it though for only the sound. Just get a kn filter and cut the stock box. Car will breath better and you will hear it more.


Yeah Mangina, im taking care of that. IM rotating the bov so it sits higher. Thanks.

Is it just me, or are there no conical K&N filters out for the SRT-4's? Pardon my ignorance, I'm a DSM guy :D

Does the SRT-4 utilize a silencer like the WRX. My girlfriends son has one and we just removed the silencer, and now you can hear the turbo spool up.

it looks like the penguin on the left steps into broken ice and falls in. i think someone added the other penguin. although, maybe the penguin just has a good sense of humor. :lol:

It's the same kind of humour displayed by ferrets (I swear those little beasts play practical jokes on each other!) Sometimes you'll see them nudge each other off a ledge. :lol:
