Getting more noise from the turbo?

Before I begin, yes I know it might be seen as chavvy, but I do love the sound of a turbo spinning up to boost.

Is there any quick/easy way to achieve this on my 156 1.9JTDm 16V?

I was thinking drilling the airbox? Though having seen where it is, I'd be interested to know how to remove it to do the work. Of course any other suggestions would be good too.

Remove the airbox fully, replace with open style K&N or similar.

I have done this on my 2.4JTD and it does sound very nice... not too sure what it will sound like on yours as the 4 pots sound different to the 5's anyway....

It gave a noticable gain in responsiveness as well... might just be because the old one was so full of crap though!!
