I've noticed recently in 2nd and 3rd gear, when I punch it the turbo sometimes wheezes really loud, not like a normal turbo, like it's on its way out. Anyone know how to settle this extra wheez for a while? I don't plan on getting it rebuilt.
nope it just gets worse and worse. the brass bush that acts as a bearing on the turbo shaft loses its tolerance and starts to spin off centre and the wheez sound is the blades getting closer to the housing. my turbi howls like a banshee at times. i can hear it when i start my car and rev a little. u shouldnt be able to hear it until its under load. so its sounds u will need a rebuild buddy sorry 2 say.
