You dont have a stock BOV it's known as a BPV "By-pass valve".
You can make it somewhat louder with baffle mod.

Look up silencer delete " baffle mod", adding a intake will let you hear it more as well but unless you tune for it your better off just slapping on a B.O.V.. Or like I said in another thread get the fake under hood speaker bov that will get you the sound you are after..

I don't have to be mad to punch someone in the face!

Intakes make your bpv sound great. Some don't require a tune either.

My 02 only has the stock air box. No snorkel or anything else inside the fender or out the other side. Mine makes a pretty good sound when in boost and when you get off boost as well. Just loud enough to hear inside the cabin but not near loud enough to warrant attention from every one in Nashville.
