Why on earth would you rev the car then switch it off?

get a nice intake with a more open filter like a good quality cone, the flutter "echos" a bit louder thru the intake than the exhaust. Also a good tune amplifies it a bit.
It is an ingenius solution to a problem that should have never existed in the 1st place...

Tdi's dont flutter as a Petrol vehicle would do due to the fact that it doesn't have a throttle body or negative vacumm but yes I know what you mean by "flutter" intake noise from air hitting the blades when the intake blade is slowing down.
