I'm guessing he's looking at a bigger output from the air-con fan ..... but I could be wrong .........

I think he means intercooler noise, when you change gear.

If so you need a 2nd CAI with a performance filter like a K&N etc this will give you significant noise in a manual.

Re: Need Help

I think when he says "bigger cooler noise", he means he wants his XR Turbo to have a louder more cooler (meaning more street cred), sound.

For that, perhaps CAI, change of exhaust, and who knows what else, maybe change the engine for a V8. hehe, my bro has an XR6T so i'm not dissing it.

Re: Need Help

If ur talkin bout the PSSHHH noise then your lookin for the blow off valve.
Get a Turbosmart or APS one or soemthing. Its bolt on

Re: Need Help

i think he means the noise that vl turbos make, a friend of mine with a mean vl turbo got the noise by fitting a larger intercooler and running a pipe from the turbo compressor inlet to the area behind the headlight and fitting a pod filter to the end of it, u may also need to disable the stock blow off valve from operating

XR6 TURBO

If ya talking about blowoff valves or exhaust notes just go to herrods and purchase these items i have both of these items fitted and it doesn't void warrenty.
The blow off valve is adjustable and i have mine set to a set down low as i don't want it to sound like those rex's i can just hear it in the car and that's good enough for me

Re: Need Help

If your talking bigger induction noise... you fit a second CAI from the air box... I have the XR8 one that fits in perfectly under the front headlight... is almost the same as the one the typhoon now has.... you need to get 100mm plumber pipe and the xr8 snorkel to do this.... total cost about $70 and 1 hour of your time... the best part is it looks totally factory and you would not pick it just by having a glacne under the bonnet.. you can hear the noise when changing gears, very nice!!
