      cant here mine at all.

      i think its becase of the air box configuration. fit an induction kit and you'll be able to here it spool up better

                      I can never hear it on my VXR, maybe somthing to do with the sound deading cover underneath the bonnet or that it's not that big a turbo.

                      For better sound fit an induction kit, but then again this could make your car run poor (heat intake), fit a dump valve if you want to hear something to do with your turbo

                        the car boosts as it is, if you change gear, or lift off the throttle at the right moments, you get a nice healthy boost noise. i love it

                          Yea it does boost as it is as it's a turbo

                          What I was trying to point out is that it's very quiet. If he want's to hear the "turbo" (or turbo gases) then he needs to fit an after market dump valve.

                          The whine he want's to hear is different as it's the turbo spooling up not the gases been given off.

                            im confused here.

                            i only here the turbo spinning up in second, and its not massivly loud.

                            as for a dumpvalve, weve all heard mixed results on them

                              LOL I'm getting confused as well...... :?

                              Back to the start, why isn't the turbo spinning in the Astra very loud?

                              Because it's better built than the other cars you've driven

                              (I've had a few drinks so this could be going in the wrong direction completly).
