Could be solved with a few loud-speakers.

  Short time ago I found out boy racers were using speakers to simulate turbo
whine and sound effect from the blowoff valve.

  What's the world coming to?  That's just plain wrong.

**It could, until you start crunching the numbers. To achieve the SPLs
required, at the desired frequencies, very large speakers and huge amount of
power would be required. It would be difficult to fit all the equipment in a
two door sports car. You'd squeeze into a small van though.

Might have to redesign the speakers somewhat. I don't see why they have
to be physically large though - the system whose sound output they're
emulating isn't that big.
