He is running one of the new Cheetah Turbos. That is why it sounds like a jet.;)

Mine does that in park also. Probably just the electronics in these things. No more cables you know.....

Metal tubes may make it sound better, but you will lose hp due to the heat that the metal radiates and doesn't dissipate.

the added heat from the intake will be negligable once the air is heated by compression. even then, it still has to go through the intercooler.

Just put a WorkHorse HD intake on my otherwise stock LLY and I noticed a slight increase in turbo whistle. Exhaust is next so I'm sure that and eliminating the cat will make a big difference too.
