    Increasing The Sound Of Turbo Spool?

    Can any of you Eggheads kindly tell me if there is a way to dramatically increase the sound of Turbo Spool with a KKK Turbo on a Let/Leh?..

    Having had an affiliation with the oldskool turbo'd cars of the 80's / 90's I have always loved the sound and anticipation of the boost building up in the turbo, before it is finally delivered into performance. Even some modern day Turbo'd cars like Subaru's produce noticable Turbo Spool from their IHI units..

    Garrett, IHI, HKS and Greddy Turbos all tend to produce Turbo Spool that is really noticable when driving along and I would like my turbo to produce this sound.

    Is it possible to achieve this sound with a KKK Turbo? or is it only really a feature of the above turbo makes due to their airflow ratios and power ratings?..

    Any tips / tricks to achieving this?

    Thanks in advance

    Karl the Cone Filter is something I don't want to run, I have heard they can cause premature failure of the AFM/MAF...

    Ps I am running as much boost as I want to run a present as I am happy with the power my Red.Dot map makes.

    Any other suggestions?... I am sure there was someone on here that drilled a load of holes in their airbox can't remember if this worked or not?.
