Hi Adrian
There is a technical section, however, you do have to pay £6 for a 6 months membership or £10 for a year. Well worth it though
But what's up?

Hi there, weird one this....car runs superb pulls well ect, no noises on tickover ect, but when driving just as apply throttle a little bit before the boost creeps in and gauge moves I hear a whistling soon as turbo engages or starts to this whistling goes off. The noise comes in when gauge reads 0 it's more annoying then worrying!! Lol any ideas??

fella. Your whistling noise just sounds like the turbo spooling up, probably nothing to worry about.

I was just going to say, Sean beat me to it. You do get a little whistling; is it quite loud though to become irritating? Should be fine

You didn't say there was a break in the whistling.... that might be an air leak somewhere, might be worth checking your hoses.

Boost pressure leak perhaps? But then then it would be more than your average whistle if that was the case. I'm not too sure. Mine's always whistling more than your average milkman.

hahaha I now realise you're especially swifty. Beat me to it again? All praise, kneel down before you, and repeat what's on your avatar picture over and over again

Boost hits just over half then drops back so seems okay and pulls well as said its weird if I plant throttle doesn't so it at all, 30mph in 3rd slight throttle (whistle) push tad harder stops as boost gauge starts to move and turbo spools,

Could be your recirc valve thats failed? Often happens especially if you're running the DS CAIS or the car is or has been modded... Whistles when on light throttle or coming off throttle? Thats what my whistle was, nothing to worry about, stopped when I swapped the induction kit from Dream Science to Auto Specialist.
