    500T No Turbo Sound

    Hello all,

    I recently purchased a 500T, and have added the RRM air intake. On my Abarth I had a few years back, this was a great intake and produced a ton of turbo sound. But on the 500T there is no turbo noise. I'm also not convinced the turbo is even spooling up properly, as there isn't the same pull I would git at higher RPMs in the Abarth. I know it's a detuned engine, but I've seen other videos online of 500T's with aftermarket intakes producing turbo noise.

    Is there a way of testing to see if the turbo is spooling up, or if it's producing enough boost?

    I barely hear my turbo UNLESS I press my Sport button...
    I have a Madness open short intake.
    Your car is basically my car with no Sport button.
    Hope this helps.

    Turns out the wastegate actuator was not connected to the turbo. Got a new e-clip and all's good now.
