Default War Emergency Power: No Sound Effect?

When I activate WEP (at full throttle and RPM) I see the manifold pressure increase; but the engine noise does not change at all.
In my layman's understanding, the engine should give a bit of a roar at WEP.
Also, I do not have the impression that the aircraft actually accelerates but that needs more testing.

Confirm: No sound difference with or without WEP.

Condition: Full throttle and rpm (2300/91), level at 500 meter, 400 km/h.
WEP on: Boost goes to 107-108 and it accelerates to 430 km/h after a minute ca (level flight).
WEP off: Back to 400 km/h.

WEP again, engine quit. To much WEP, max 30 sec recommended.

Note, 500 meter alt indicated. Took off Senaki, didn't adjust altimeter for sea level. Interesting (or not): At low speed (150 km/h) hitting WEP makes boost go only to 98. One need to exceed 250 km/h ca (didn't test exactly) for boost to go to max (107-108 ) with WEP.
Also note, rpm is max 2200, unless one retards and forward rpm lever, then it goes to 2300. As if breaking a wire perhaps. I seem to remember if one runs at 2300 even at boost only 91 for a long while, engine will quit.

Also noted, accidentally, that it runs 10 km/h faster with tank nearly empty. 410 vs 400 km/h (91 boost/ 2300 rpm level 500 meter).
