Well my 2011's are quiet! I can hear a little whine sometimes when I have the windows down. Also there is almost no lag which is awsome. Enjoy!

Mine is tuned and I can hear mine very clearly with windows up or down. Even over the tires humming...

Those gauges are pretty slick. How do they mount and how are they powered?
They are powered from the OBDII port. You can mount them in a pillar pod, or in the AC vent. Pretty much any standard gauge mount will work.

I run tq pro app on a droid device ($5.00 app) and an OBD2 bluetooth dongle...you can clear codes and select a custom gauge layout (ie: boost/afr/timing/exhaust temps, etc.).

Its really not complicated to run a boost gauge setup, the only problem I had was finding a 12v accessory source that turned on with ignition, which I used #38 in the passenger side fuse box. I run a Roush Mechanical gauge and vent pod.
