SAMLAMBO's downshift suggestion works if you have the automatic. I have a stick, so really, all I have to do is wrap it up a little bit and take my foot off the gas- usually goes "burble burble BLAP burble burble THUD burble burble"

Wrap it way up to red line and let off the gas, and you get the funky turbo whine as the wastegate opens, followed by the rumble and backfire.

I presume in an auto it's tougher, as you have to overide the transmission's clutch disconnect somehow.
