If you look at the engine on the drivers side intercooler pipe it has a silver foil insulation for sound deadening purposes. You can remove that pipe and remove the foil and glue to get a louder turbo whine from the engine. You will probobly only notice it in the cab it won't be any louder out the tailpipe. I haven't done this mod as mine is already to loud, but from what I understand its not an easy task removing the glue.
