    Default Jet Engine Sound

    There is a sound like a jet engine that gets a little bit louder as you increase in speed. It seems to be coming from the front end of the car. Just wondered if anyone could help.

    Cheers

    If the gaskets are not fitted correctly or damaged a little it will whistle past he Gasket. I had a little dirt in mine and it whistled like mad.

    Can this kind of leak affect the performance in anyway, Sine I had a new brand spanker egr valve fitted my Vec seems to not have the same amount of power, especially through 3rd to 4th, not loads of power loss, just a little. Or could this be something else??
