    I think its called the 475 or the VI Saleen series blower. It comes on the 07-08 S281 sc cars. Anyway how do I get this thing to scream a little. It is almost silent!

    not sure if you have a serpentine belt driving the blower or not, but if you do... get a gatorback belt. that added a lil extra whizzing sound to the kb. also, get a pulley. ;)

    Newer blowers are more efficient than old Eatons, and as such aren't nearly as loud.

    That being said, porting and/or pulley-ing it would likely make it louder, although I'm not sure by how much.

    Smaller pulley #1. #2, don't know what intake you have, but the more free flowing it is, the more sound it lets out....

    Those benefit a lot from a lower pulley and a thump_RR tensioner, basic cold air kit

    FWIW, we had a few blowers ported. Didn't do much unless you were really pulleying the hell out of it (2.75/15% cars) which really should be an aftermarket blower at that point.

    Don't upgrade the exhaust, pulley and CAI if you want the sound.

    You need to create more back pressure, a lot people I know get a smaller exhaust when they get a turbo.
