turbo sound effects

Ok, so I was looking though my bosses hot rod and in the back where all the advertisments are there was this contraption that makes your car sound like it has a turbo. It hooks up to your exhaust. It doesnt give you any hp gains just sound, so why would anybody buy it ? Oh well, I thought it was funny as hell, figured you guys would to.

It's kinda sad. I think if there was a dictionary entry for ricer, that thing would have its picture right there. People get it to look cooler, and sound faster, but not spend a lot.

Its not a whistle, its a big red flag to help point out the idiots.

Then again, I remember back in highschool when I thought the idea of that vortex-maker in your intake tubing sounded like the best idea ever. In my defense, that was before I even got my driving permit.

I'm dating myself but way back when, I used to take my Dad's Chevy Caprice with a 350 and 2 barrel carb, flip the air cleaner lid over, so there was about an inch gap around the entire filter housing... when you stepped on it, man did it make some serious induction noise..lol

i thought the whole point was to not let people think you have a turbo i think the same people that order that whistle are the same people that buy the fake intercooler, the stick on hood pins and worship paul walker for his role in everones favorite move about riced out slow cars with sweet body kit and stickers. you still owe me a ten minute car
