Fake turbo

So did anybody ever see one of those fake turbos you screw fast to your muffler? I don't want to pay $1000+ for a turbo especially on an automatic focus. Do think that this fake turbo would be worth it? Anybody have any videos of one on a focus?

I've seen plenty of videos on youtube of them and they all sound really bad... They don't sound like a turbo at all. Big waste of money.

let me be the first to say

what the hell are you talking about?!

Screwing a turbo (fake) to muffler...I feel as though I am missing a big something, as , to my knowledge, turbo typically are mounted up in the engine bay connecting to exhaust manifold.

Please clue me in

:EDIT:

Lol 3 of us posted nearly same time, so you want a fake turbo sound....really?

Just put all windows up and in between shifts go "PSHHHHHHHT" real loud

or better yet THIS, plain old skool awesome

You call it a fake turbo. Now You have to ask Yourself: Is anything fake worth the money? I for one try not to spend very real money on fake stuff.
