    what rpms would you expect to really be able to hear

    the turbo come in on if it was all stock setup? Are these turbos loud enough to hear over the engine clearly or are they small and have a subtle whine?

    I'm asking cuz this original poster's descriptions sounds just like my car. I can't convince myself the turbo is coming in or if it is, it's pretty weak.
