    Default Making a louder turbo??

    Basicallly i want a louder turbo on my 1.9cdti 120.
    Other than getting a remap or changing turbo's and fitting dumpvalves what can i do?

    Also what can i do to make it quicker. I havent the money for a remap so im on the lookout for a second hand tuning box. Also a k&n filter.

    What else can i do other than that.

    Not alot I guess lol

    I found with the Apollo fitted to my 2.0T the dump was louder as it wasn't dampened by the standard airbox, would actually turn heads LOL.

    A "uni fit" is a universal fitment. You need the diameterof the intake pipe before you can choose one.
    The engine has a "gruffer" note to it.The induction kit gives a nice flutter.....i also get looks due to the noise
