Well here is what my truck sounds like with the turbo not working. I'll try to get a day shot.

YUP,, no whistle at'tall
These turbo's have variable vanes. They tend to stick with coke (soot) or rust. Do you drive it hard or just on short trips. Shortie trips and lots of idle '= no good for PSD. Take intake cleaner off at turb and see if it is spinning free or any damage to vanes.

Turbo is fine I just plugged it back in. Try it, it sounds badass. Everyone's doing it.

Probably not. It's kinda like when the boost tubes blow off. Either way the engine isn't getting boost.
