    I want to try an intake "upgrade" so bad I can't stand it. Due to the way it sounded on my old truck. But, if all it does is add to the "WHOOOOOSSSHHHH" sound. Nothing like turbos I've ever heard before.

    I think Supras and some Subarus can sound good.

    I don't really understand this. If you aren't going to get some actual performance benefit messing with the engine stuff is a terrible idea. the main problems i have is the noise coming from the tires when i go full throttle too soon.

    Some of us like noises. That's been selling mufflers for a billion years. That doesn't make it wrong.

    The intake swirlers actually do serve a purpose. They move the surge line (think safety margin) and increase compressor efficiency by a few percent. The folks at Borg Warner have tested them.

    Plus try taking a long road trip with the family; radio turned down and the wife says...."what's that noise?"
    "You mean that continuous swirling rushing noise coming from the intake tubes"-lol
    I couldn't wait to put them back in!

    So you guys named remove the swirly fins. I did. You can tell, a little, with the windows down. I hear nothing with them up.

    Also. A different air box is generally regarded as not much performance upgrade for the money. But since a lot of them pretty much remove some of the box. Whistle increased. Or you can mod the box with a stock filter.

    Anyway. Just saying. I wanted more whistle, but I did the fins and didn't want to mess with the air box, or spend the money.

    I too like turbo whistle. Unfortunately our turbos are mounted really low, practically beneath the truck. That's why we don't get much whistle. I've done pretty much everything except the down pipes and still really can't hear them unless the windows are down.

    On the 15+ 2.7 does anyone know if the bottom hole needs to be capped when doing the VTA mod?
