    Question fitted induction kit,astravan,kool/funny nosie?

    excuse me for being a dumb ass but i have more of a car audio head then performance/tuning,ne way here goes.

    fitted a universal induction kit 2nite on my 1.7 tdi astravan mk4 and when giving it some.instead of the normal grunt i get abit of grunt wit wot sounds like a bad attempt of some1 whisling then when i ease off the throttle i get a dusshhhhh (like a dump valve) the grunt/whisle then dushh sound anything to do wit the turbo or is it summint else.

    let me know cuz im intreeged

    could well be the wastegate you can hear. On the petrol turbos, induction kits just seems to act like a megaphone, so you can hear the wastegate really loud.

    It's just your Turbo, perfectly normal.

    My mate had an Induction kit on his old 1.7 low blow for a while and you could really hear the turbo pulling air in.
