Intake, downpipe, front mount. When i had those following mods on my 08 the spool and bpv sound was a hell of a lot more noticeable.

I agree. The DP and FMIC help. But I definitely noticed the big difference with a nice DP plus a straight through turboback exhaust system.

The mod that made the most difference for me was my SPT intake. Turbo spool and BPV were MUCH louder.

Intake/Turbo Inlet will make it louder. The catless downpipe ups the noise a bit however the fmic makes the biggest difference in my opinion. You hear it echo through the pipes.

Yes, you can remove the snorkus/snorkel/tank from inside the fender and it'll make the noise more noticeable. Or, you can cut if off and still utilize the elbow portion of it which will make the ram inlet still functionable.
Like Joaquin said, the SPT doesn't require a tune since it is a product of the subaru brand performance line. Any other intake you should get a tune for but it's a waste of $$$ to get a tune just for an intake.

I'd pass. Personally I'm more a used parts kind of guy. You can easily find used AEM intakes, might have some scuffs on the piping, for like $125 shipped on sites like NASIOC, IWSTI, etc.... that's just me though. Honestly, if all you want is to make the turbo sound more noticeable, then do the airbox mod on your car. Remove the snorkus/air cleaner and you'll have your "whooosh" sound. Price = free. Maybe 30 minutes of your time.

A extremely thin wall aluminum intake with a filter element with do the trick lol... something cheap off of ebay. You will hear the compressor alot louder.

It took me a while to realize the difference of turbo spool and internal wastegate but they both sound SEXY
