Default hearing the turbo

This might be dumb but my buddy had an STI that you could hear the turbo spool fairly loudly and I liked that a lot. I think he had a CAI. Is there any way I can get that sound with the stock intake. If so how and how hard is it.

easiest / cheapest way to do it is to remove the snorkus, aka intake silencer. Best guide I can find using Google: http://www.egansworld.com/oldsite/sti_silencer.html

And like Black-Falcon said, you can REALLY hear it w/ a bigger downpipe on the car. When I put on my TurboXS (4" bellmouth taperdown to 3") it actually got annoying after a while and I switched out to a smaller pipe

CAI = not the best plan on an STi... unless you tune for it.
