delete is done

hi guys over the last 4 days i updated the s.t.c. fitting did the e,g,r, delete installed new oil cooler put in new d plugs and stand pipes radiator flush oil change all went pretty well for a first timer i think i logged around 20 hours on this project and glad it is done
i was a little nervous turning the key but she fired up and seems to run like a champ
the only issue i have is sometimes it sounds like a tea kettle whistle
can not find from were i double checked exhaust clamps up pipe etc
can this noise be from doing the delete?
or is there something else i might of missed or need to check
truck starts better and runs stronger then before delete and updates
my local mechanic said it could just be from doing delete that its pulling or pushing more air
any thoughts
thanks in advance

New up-pipe or just a blocking plate? Might be the v-band clamps at any location. You really have to make sure they are lined up and mated or you will have a leak. Same for any removed exhaust gasket. Next thing is to go back to the boots, the air intake.

If you can isolate an area, it will be an easier find.

Did you do the delete because you wanted to or because you had to? I ask because that tea kettle whistle more times than not means the puke jug cap is bleeding off pressure, which usually means the head gaskets are shot. Do you watch egt's? That would tell you if it is an up pipe leak or not, they run hotter if it is leaking.

well i did some more searching last night and i think i found it
it is not the degass seems to be the upper connection on up pipe might not be seated tightly
weird thing is it seems to go away intermittenly but is definatly comming from behind the turbo

and yes i did the delete before problems happen and replaced the up pipe no plug or puck
