    Not standard iirc, and neither of mine ever did it, sounds like a hole in a rubber pipe tbh.

    Sounds like an airleak, have you had the airfilter apart recently?

    I'd have thought it was just the turbo winding up, then expelling the excess charge air through the wastegate...

    Check it isn't a bearing whistling then, this can also make this sort of sound, unlikely but you never know, if you can get it top do it on idle have someone revs it for you and try to hear where it's coming from.
