have a wierd boost noise,not sure were to start

since i have installed the intake ive noticed that under partial throttle i get what sounds like backed up boost pressure. from what i have read it seems it comes from the boost control valve in the pedestal. if im under full throttle and let off just a little you can really hear it. what causes this? is it bad? how can i fix? im planning on installing a ww,non-ebv pedestal and porting the turbo were i can.

more reading shows that it may be the turbo solenoid. are failures common for these?

If it sounds like that, it's turbo surge & a wicked wheel took care of it for me.

Boost surge for sure, wicked wheel will solve it. Short intakes don't work well with some turbo's.
