Default For Ecoboost guys who want to hear more turbo noise

While doing some wiring trying to poke a hole in an unused rubber groment on the firewall I accedently popped the groment out and it fell ouch of reach into the in cab side. No big deal I'll find it later or buy a new one. Well the hole is right abouve the turbo and bypass valve. Now on the passenger side I can hear the turbo spooling way louder in the cab and blowing off. There's probable a matching groment on the driver side havnt looked yet. It's kinda cool but may plug it back up. With the tiny quick spooling turbos it doesn't sound as cool as my Sti did with a larger slower spooling turbo. Either wAy kinda fun to try

Interesting. I'll bet it does sound cool. StereoSpooling would be even better.


However, what could possibly go wrong?
