    If the whistle is new there may be a split pipe/hose somewhere.

    Careful of that, if you have crack in the hoses, it may easily get bigger...
    In a bad moment and that may put it in safe/limp mode immediately...

    It all depends on if you have had your car tunned, I have had my 1.7 06 remapped a k&n installed and my turbo whisles, and it sounds amazing real head turner, , just check the pipes for any damage, if not then your all good pal, enjoy the sound
