On the 2.2 S the rear boxes were selected and tuned to match the 2.2 engine by Prodrive, and they certainly add a certain something to the aural character. It starts at around 2000 - 2500 rpm and really hits the sweet spot in the final stages as the engine winds itself up to 7000rpm at which point it is wailing nicely.
Not sure how much benefit a 2.4 diesel will get aurally, especially as it has a turbo which totally alters the engines exhaust pulses and in fact, almost removes them plus it runs to much lower rpm. With an airbox fitted you should get a nice intake noise at lower revs though.
