Haha, it doesn't even sound like a turbo. It sounds like a whistle.

Kinda sounds like the car is a diesel...which means it's already turbo'd?

Not all diesels are turboed.... just most of them. I've driven plenty of non-turbo diesel ambulances.

Lol. I put on of these on my mom's 330xi. TWO MONTHS go by before she starts telling me, "my car is making this whistling sound Adam". She pulls up next to me and redlines the mother fucking. "Listen!!(VROOOOM), You hear it?"


I lol'd for almost 10 minutes.
