    mine did this on start up and after a couple of minutes it would stop, it sounded like a pully/belt slipping but I fitted a vxr turbo at the week end and now the noise has gone, so im thinking it was the turbo or a least a non sealing exhaust manifold gasket (tbh the bolts were not that tight!)
