    Default Turbo noise

    Hi

    Just wondering what a healthy turbo should sound like. I've had the window open while driving along n can hear the turbo spool up at about 1500/1800 revs and as it keeps going, the steady ascending whistle becomes a bit 'warbled' (best word i could think to describe it).

    Not particularly got any reason to suspect anything wrong, just wondered if this is a healthy noise or not cos my last diesel turbo (vw golf) didn't make the warbled noise

    Cheers
    Dan

    Yeah same with mine, when its cold the whistle is rather clear in the mornings, sounds good, makes me want a straight through exhaust
