Any simple ways to increase the audible presence of the two turbos under the hood?

And I would prefer no BOV's..

yeah so i guess there is no simple way.......

simple way is "BOV", other than that you will not hear the turbo like you want to hear it

technically a BOV wont give you the turbo noise. it'll give you the noise of pressurized air leaving the intake tract when you close the throttle plate via removing your foot from the gas. if you want to hear your turbos you'll need aftermarket or larger downpipes/exhaust section like was mentioned before. intake will give you the suction noise, bov will give you the ricer "psshhh" noise.

HAHA pwnage.

I can hear mine just revving it up in neutral...hearing them spool a bit then spin down. And I gave it some gas passing my friend the other day and he heard them as well. We arent driving some huge single turbo Supra here people.
