Fake tubo sound for your car...

You guys ever see on ebay that fake turbo sound that you can put in your exhaust? Its like 14 bucks. My buddy bought one the other day and threw it on his 07 focus. Its pretty much just a small whistle that attaches to the end of you exhaust pipe. lol It actually makes his car sound like a turbo diesel when accelerating at higher speeds! When he just revs it kind of sounds like a turbo or supercharger. I just thought I would let everyone know about it. I thought it was kind of funny.

Heres what it looks like, my friend's is kind of different looking but you get the idea...

Someone has a thread for this already in the Hot deals & Shopping Fanatics section >>Clicky<<. You can easily check on youtube as to how this sounds since they have about 20 or more on there. They sound funny as hell to listen to if you find the right one and hear the guy driving past the camera.

Frankly I don't see anything different about that device......compared to all the fake race car stuff you see around here. Wouldn't it be cheaper to get a CD with race car sounds and play it at top volume as you drive around?

Or you could just throw dollar bills out the window as you're driving.....that'll give you a true turbo feeling for sure.

I remember replacing a turbo on a new Z-car because the owner complained about the turbo sound. I carried the old turbo around in my trunk for a while (till I sold it). There was nothing wrong with it at all. While I was doing that, I put a "turbo" sticker on my Datsun 510, since I now had a turbo in the car. The morons at work who actually had turbo cars were pissed.....
