blue spring issue

alright I installed a blue spring on my truck never had any issues everything is tip top. I installed a blue spring on my dads truck and now it has a crazy whistling sound that takes place at idle and when you let out of the pedal whats the deal I feel bad because I don't live close enough to hop over and fix it but I don't really know whats wrong

Well it could not be seated right, there is an indention for that spring in the cap with the screws, if its not seated in there it would make the spring tighter then it should be because it compressed a hair more than it should be. I don't think that would make it whistle thought, did you loosen the cold air return tube for easier install? That could be the source of the whistle if its loose, or the air intake system? I left mine loose after blue spring install and it blew off under WOT test run. Just a thought.

Check the fuel line you disconnected, check filter cap, check housing torx screws and housing gasket? Did you make sure all the boots and clamps are all tight?

Whistling means something is leaking, as mentioned you need to go back over everything to ensure it is properly seated. Hope you find the problem, good luck.

1. check for any fluid leaks, that would be a dead giveaway you didn't put something in right

2. sounds like an intake leak or something like drillrock said. did you have to take anything else apart, loosen anything, or might have accidentally bumped something hard enough to create an air leak??

the whistling is only at idle? as soon as you touch the gas its gone? if so i doubt its the turbo piping, it would get worse right?
