Possible boost leak, loud whining sound coming from turbo

Post by JimBos Legacy » Wed Jun 13, 2018 1:56 am

Sup guys, a very loud whining is coming from my turbo, at idle there is no noise at all, but once it starts providing boost a loud whine comes from it. The level of whine is changed by how much throttle I give it. I have sprayed soapy water all over the thing but can’t seem to find any leaks. Any help would be appreciated, I’ll try to add a video to show you guys the sound.

UPDATE: Here’s the video link
