You would need a custom intake pipe:



It does sound great but heat soak would be a problem if you didn't section it off like the video.

Is there a blow-off valve installed in this video?

No BOV! The sound comes from the air filter as the pressure is released back into the air intake system unlike older cars.

The video is my 1.0l turbo and to get the sound you have to buy a k&n filter and also I removed the bottom half of the filter housing by cutting out a large section to increase the noise.

Would love to, but I guess the AEM is not available for my diesel cdti. Neither a BOV for it.

Simply removing the bottom of the airbox and leaving the standard filter in will give this noise.
