Strange noise

Today I was running between 85-90mph on the road and started hearing a sound like a squealing speedo cable. A friend who was in the truck said it sounds like the turbos about to fail, is this correct or could there be another, hopefully less expensive problem? I was about to look into trading the truck in and don't want to have to do any expensive repairs, if I do I may as well keep it.

I would guess either a belt tensioner or idler pulley.

That was my thought also but the noise sounded like it was literally coming from right behind the instrument panel. My friend actually turned and looked right at the same spot I was which is what lead us to the turbo assumption.

Also an exhaust leak might cause a squealing noise. Check the up pipes for soot to make sure they aren't cracked. Also take a look around the exhaust manifolds.
