    Maybe a slightly odd question, but before I book in for my Revo next week, I was wondering if it will change the engine or exhaust noise of the car at all?

    Cheers!

    Slightly higher pitch and more audible whistle from the Turbo.
    If you have the window down you get a nice `flutter` sound too when giving it the beans (wastegate??).

    Thats with REVO Stage 1 and without any bolt-ons.

    BTW Im running B7-T6-F9 ands its sweet as a nut:icon_thumright:

    Cheers

    When we went to Edition 38 last year in Northampton, we went from Holyhead in Wales and through all the tunnels.

    I was told the car sounded class going there and after getting my Revo done at the show, I was then told the car sounded awesome!!

    The turbo is boosting harder and for longer so there will be a noise difference but it's a very nice noise lol
