    how noisy is your turbo?

    when i put my foot down i can hear the turbo and it's quite loud, imagine going shhhhhhhhhhhhhh really loud.

    is this common on the s3?

    reason i ask is my pervious car, astra gsi turbo was really quiet.

    thanks for your help in advance

    I wouldn't say they are that loud, I have a cavalier Turbo and would say thats louder than my S3 ( although it has been modded a fair bit ), difficult to say really, is your S3 standard?

    its definitely audible. Not too sure how loud 'loud' is though, and you can hear when the DV operates too. None of this is audible from the outside though, or from the passenger seat - just from the drivers seat.

    My S3 also sounds much louder than my brothers TT too.

    It's neither, its a Garret GT28RS Eliminator. Can you remember the difference between standard and mapped? Same again plus a little more.
