Strange "Whistling" Sound (not turbo)

I have a strange whistling sound that sounds like it is coming from under the hood on the drivers side. I am wondering if it is coming form the degas bottle and if it is why. It only does it when the engine is under a strain, especially when pulling a loaded trailer. I have noticed some coolant loeaking out of the degas lately when I drive it hard whether pulling a load or otherwise.

Also, the truck has been making some ridiculously high boost numbers the past couple of months or so. 35-43psi on stock head bolts. I do have a 58v FICM but am not running the tunes designed for it because they still aren't dialed in right. They are building insane boost numbers also but don't seem to be getting the fuel needed to go with it. Very sluggish. I've been trying to work with Elite since October to get this truck running right and am really getting tired of it but have no other options.

Any advice?

I had the same thing... Sounds Like a tea Kettle?? When i finally took it to the dealer it was the HGs and egr... But you might wanna start with a new degas cap (alot cheaper) and go from there... Best of luck

I agree with the head gaskets.A lot of the 6.0's whistle like a tea kettle when the head gaskets are blown and usually puke out the coolant bottle.The egr cooler usually smokes when its bad.

If you're seeing boost numbers that high, I'd bet you have sticky vanes in your turbo. That high boost likely caused your head gaskets to blow (considering you're on head bolts and seeing 43 psi of boost).

Yeah it does sound like a tea kettle. I was afraid that was what it was. I'll try the degas cap first but it looks like I may being doing a stud job. I really dread having to do that. I can't afford to pay someone else to do it so I may get some hands on experience. Not being able to do cab-off is going to stink!!

So if I stud it should I go ahead and replace the turbo with a bigger one while it's apart (since it will be studded) or just clean the old one.

Change the cap.

Although your boost numbers indicate sticking turbo vanes

No you cant clean it without pulling it.

As to your replacement turbo comment. Are you planning on an injector upgrade in the future?
