Hey everyone soo i am new to the forums i have been looking at post for the past couple days but i just picked up my 98.5 A41.8T and i was just saying hey to everyone.

I had one question so obiously i had to drive it a littl hard today sence i just got it but when i was reving up i could not hear the turbo.. i know its spooling cus i have AWE boost gague and i can feel the boost too... It has a GIAC chip in it and thats the only performance mod i belive oh and a 007 Audi TT DV. My friend has a 97 A41.8t and he has the giac chip and turbo back exhaust and i can hear his turbo like crazy but i cant hear mine.... any sugestions???

yup, but you'll probably go through MAF's every other week. You don't need to hear, just know it's doing it's job.

hey yeah i know its not good to put a filter or modify the stock air box at all. I was just wondering if the turbo back exhaust was the only thing making it so you could hear it more

lol well thats always a good thing to hear when you first buy a use car... someone else telling you that it is good condition hehe =P

There was one more noise that i have i cant tell if it is my Suspension or brakes. I noticed he had upgraded brakes on it before and it looks like there are brake lines also. I have been reading around and i heard it could be my controll arms but i donno =\ any more sugestions??

Who says? I got some decent gains / spool reduced with my intake. The turboback exhaust makes a huge difference in turbo noise too, even under vacuum my turbo whistles.

word of advice for my 500th post...

the less noises you hear the better...

be happy you dont hear anything, all these guys can vouch for that :)
