How do the turbos sound? Can you hear them? Might not be as easy to tell without intakes and ***.

Anyways, I went through a few sets of OEM turbos and can't say I ever noticed any of the idle, exhaust sound, or other symptoms you're mentioning. That's my only hesiation to turbos and wondering if there's another issue or a combination of things.
Thanks for the reply mate!

The only time I can slightly hear the turbo's is when the car is cold. After 5 minutes of driving the car sounds like it's Naturally Aspirated.
