My turbo sounds like a ricer...is that normal?
This has just started happening this winter. Let me tell you about it. In the range of 1250-1750 rpm, something in the turbo emits a higher pitched chirp between intakes, like those "boom turbos" on little race cars.
I know our motors all develop their own unique characters, but ol' Percy is almost 9 years old now. It seems to me like the time for the turbo to announce its natural quirks has long passed.
Is this something I should be concerned about? Anyone have the same situation? I don't really mind the sound itself, but it's just that it's a recent thing that has never happened before.
