I've seen Mazda RX-7's and Toyota Supra Turbo's with modified blow-off
valves and when they down shift it makes that "PPPPPPfffftttttt!" sound.
Pretty cool. Reminds me of Porsche 962's at LeMans.
What the blow-off valve does is keep the turbos spinning while down
shifting. Greddy and HKS, a Japanese tuning firm makes them. Geddy has
universal fit blow-off valves. 
If I get an A4 1.8T I would definitely put one in my car. "Pppppfffftttt!"
Maybe scare someone in a parking garage or something. But then again I
might get sued.

I do have one question. How do you get your turbo charged cars to belch
out flames through the exhaust pipe when down shifting?
