    whistle noise coupe turbo

    Hi i have coupe turbo and for the last couple of days i been getting a whistle noise between 2 and 4000 revs. in boost i think. Could it be an air leak from one of the boost pipes or anything? Standard coupe turbo with vxr turbo on it and baileys dv. Any help would be much appriciated.

    mine whistles and ive had a new turbo fitted that was correctly primed. it only whistles when you go full on the boost. wasnt there another thread on this and the bloke was told by the garage that it was normal?

    Yeh there's been a couple of threads recently. The one you mentioned was a 1.7dti, apprently they whistle quite alot from the replies in that thread.

    I just put the other post up because related to same engine, with VXR unit etc.

    It only started making that noise a few days ago. i got a feeling there is air coming out of one of the pipes somewhere. car still runs spot on though.
