Turbo spool

Hey guys quick question, I'm just curious as to why I cant really hear my turbo spool up. My buddies subi spools up pretty loud and besides an aftermarket bov and downpipe we have pretty much the same setup. Its still pushing boost so I don't think its going bad, I just feel like I should be able to hear it better and figured someone could tell me what to do.

do you still have the intake silencer on your car. for me i had it removed while keeping the stock air box and didn't hear much but since ive put on the cobb cai i can def hear it a lot more.even sounds like i have a bov on the car,but still using the stock bypass valve.

It just varies car to car. I've had 4 turbos on my car and not one of them has made any audible sound. Meanwhile you can hear my gf's stock turbo thanks to her 4" downpipe.

Ok yeah, I was just kinda wondering what was with that, I plan to get a bigger downpipe and tune soon so maybe that will help, but I appreciate the responses.

exhaust mods, and intake mods increase the sound of spoolup. if he has a downpipe and you don't then that could be why.
