    Hey Guys! I recently just got rid of my 2015 wrx. The only thing I did to that car was put in a KN air filter in it. It obviously didn't add any HP and I could careless about gas mileage, but what I did love was the fact that the Turbo spool was a lot louder. Has anyone put one of these in a 3.5 ecoboost exploer? Does it sound better? are you happy with it?

    Probably not much, had them in multiple cars haven't noticed much. Gas mileage probably goes down, I keep trying to see if its louder...

    With OEM, you're not going to really have any noticeable noise coming from the turbo's sadly.
