Sound clip? Video?

Really poor quality, but it was taken from my cell phone clipped to the steering wheel. I will try to get some video sometime. That video was on the old, small T25 at 13psi; I'm on the new GT2554R now at 15-16psi.

Now that's quiet!

You should try mine with the full custom intake and outlet on it - you get a whistling sound over everything then a whooshing sound that gets higher in pitch the closer to 12psi it gets.
Not annoying though at all, in fact I'd say it was much quieter than some stock Miata's I've been in!

That video doesn't even come close to capturing the sound. This thing sounds like a Mack Truck spooling up. I've gotten used to it now. It's just a huge change over stock.

I still maintain it's the size of your compressor inlet and how it's shaped.

LISTEN. turn mine all the way up. you can't hear the intake even when scott shoves his face into the manifold.

Probably a little louder than that. It's a 2.25" inlet with a 4" cone filter and a very short run to the turbo itself.
