Turbo
#1
Have recently noticed a very (very) slight whistle which I am guessing is coming from the turbo.
To hear it you have to have the windows down, stereo off and your head out of the window. But it is there. Faint, but there. And not noticed it before.
Should I:-
1. Worry.
2. Panic.
3. Check part nos., availability and prices for a new turbo.
4. Start saving.
5. Turn Metallica up to 11.
6. Stop driving with my head out of the window.

As always, all advise greatfully received.

OK. I would start doing numbers 1/2/3/4 just incase Wink.
Number 5 is normal and should be done at all times :thumbsup:.
Number 6 I only do when all body gasses are spent after eating a king size kebab from the night before Big Grin

Mine does it under "normal" acceleration.
Should I only worry if run out of CD volume?
