Are you referring to the deal you put on your exhaust or intake.

One of my friends ordered one and put it on their car. but it was a hyundai accent I think. Either way he said he really loved it and he drove around all day, it sounded real but then it fell off on the interstate haha.

I would imagine the turbo sound or effect by itself should sound the same no matter what you put it on

so you guys want your trucks to sound like a turbo but still be slow? not criticizing, just a little confused.... it's like lifting a 2 wheel drive truck and putting 35" tires to go off-roading...
