running a straight pipe will get you more turbo whine and ditching the stock airbox and running a k&n cone will also increase turbo noise but it will never sound like a late 60's deuce and a half

Doug is right. Running without the stock airbox makes the turbo extremely loud. You will hear all the turbo sounds you want when you run a K&N cone. Eventually your ears will bleed, but I guess if that's your thing

By the way, there is no silencer ring on a TDI turbo. The only silencer rings I have ever seen are on large frame turbos, for example, Holsets with T4 frames that you'd find on Cummins diesel engines.

Having never seen a TDI, I will tell you what made my race car's turbo whistle like queens cabby staring at a porn star. Saw off the exhaust from the wastegate and have it dump to atmosphere. Removes any back pressure on the turbo and will spin up easily and (loudly) at low RPMs.

I ran without an exhaust for a little while on my 200tdi while welding up a new exhaust and I can tell you from experience that this makes your Defender sound like a 100hp lawnmower. Which is to say, very noisy

I may have gained 0.1875 horsepower from the open downpipe. Maybe 0.1876. I didn't dyno the truck so I'm not sure.
