Revving in Neutral

I just put a cold air intake onto my car, and it sounds great when I'm driving and I floor it. Has a really good sound to it. Usually around 5000-6000rpm. However, when people say "Let me hear what it sounds like", and I go to rev the engine, I can never get that sound.

Is it because the car is capping at 4000rpm? or is there another reason? I would love to be able to give people a preview of the sound without have to be driving at 60mph.

The sound comes from burning fuel. When you rev a car in neutral, it's not burning any fuel to speak of. In fact, challengers sound their worst when people do that, so please don't do that.
