I have the BSR Stage I upgrade, and it is wonderful. I really love the turbo sound. I was just wondering how much louder it gets with the intake system.

Re: How much louder is turbo w/ K&N intake system? (2006S40T5)

At least the drop in filter does nothing.

With the window open you can hear the faint whistle of the turbo and the pressure release of the blow off valve. Nice to hear, but nothing to get excited about though, and probably not audible from 15 feet away.

That's not a "pressure release", because the car doesn't have a blow-off valve. What you're hearing is probably the CBV (Compressor Bypass Valve), which recircuates the pressurized airflow without losing air. Similar, but generally far superior to a BOV.<p>Tom.

What's considered loud? It's louder than stock, but it's not obnoxious (or even close)<BR><BR>

I think the K&N Intake makes a big difference from the stock turbo noise. Its not anoying or extremely loud, but you can def. hear it now. IMO its SWEET

Re: (makonyy15)

It makes you notice you have the motor running and with aggresive driving , windows down and good ears , you might even notice you have a turbo. <p>all this combined with a 3" Down pipe and eurosports exhaust and bsr stage 3. a tiny bit tad louder perhaps if you want it to be is the best description. <p>Wife won't notice if this is what you are asking <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
