does tom's turbo make the pssh sound ?

I like the pssh sound. It sounds intimidating. What would I need to get after I get toms turbo kit to get the pssh sound if it doesent have it.

Anyone else feel their zetec kicking in?

hey, if you got turbo, sometimes u want to show it off :P

but if your just getting the turbo for that sound, ummm, thats the biggest waste of money ever, might want to look at just getting like a AEM CAI that will make a lil whistle noise for ya when you shift

I would actually prefer minimal blow-off. A lot more fun to sneak up one someone and hide the fact you have a turbo until you blow right past them.
