well, i'm no expert, but turbos are pretty loud, but i dunno about "400m" loud. there might be a leak in a gasket somewhere, loos fitting from tubing or something like that. ask him to do a quick check....hope this helps...

p.s. any Sti engine available in your part of the world? hehehe, thought i'd ask...
