driver side whistling sound

I noticed the other day when pulling my trailer and pulling a big hill, that when the turbo seemed to reach full boost there was a loud whistling noise that sounded like it was coming from the driverside of the engine compartment under the dash. I'm fairly new to diesel pickups so was wondering if this is normal or if I have a leak or turbo issues? It only does it when I seem to really get on it. Don't have gauges yet.

Check your up pipes where they Y up into the turbo housing see if you have soot around them. There is a donut gasket on each one. Under a load they can make noise

It doesn't sound like turbo surge, it's more of a high pitched, loud whistle, and I have no loss of boost or power.

remove the intake and check the compressor wheel and housing for marks.

Do you have an aftermarket intake on the truck? If so they make more noise than stock.

Completely different vehicle but -
On a semi I had I developed a crack in an exhaust manifold , when building boost and pulling hills that crack created a LOUD whistle , embarrassingly loud ! Not saying it's your problem but definitely sounds as if you have a large volume of air escaping through a small something to create the whistle effect.
