    Ghosty turbo since CC

    Just building on from Prawns thread....

    Since i have had my car CC'd, the turbo whistles like a ghosty sound whenever i boot it in third from low revs....its doesnt do it unless the car is pulling from low down in the rev range, sometimes in other gears but only really noticeable in third..... no power drop however? seems to pull all the way up and the ghosty sound disappears after a few seconds

    Prawns post has worried me........ is the turbo on its way out.....

    I say nowt wrong with that mate! Increased boost pressure will make a difference to the sound, and of course performance! The whoosh will be it spooling up!
    Ya got a boost gauge? If not, why not!

    I wouldnt worry about it matey, most turbo cars will have a turbo whislte, mine was WAY beyond that, and was a highly annoying scream!

    My new turbo makes a nice whistle when it spools up at low revs, but this disappears when the revs rise.

    not enough boost/ air sucking in 1st and 2nd gears to hear the noise, and too much road noise in 4th and 5th

    It's perfectly normal

    You can see what boost it is making, and if it looses boost at full chat, which will make it spin harder, and then blow! Looks good at night too ! !

    on a side note..... dont suppose you know where the N75 wire goes to.... noticed when i changed my coil packs that the wire going to the N75 (i think its the N75 mounted on top of the block), it disappears into the heat wadding covering the turbo and down the back of the engine...i had to wrap it in electricians tape near where it goes into the heat wrap as the sheathing had melted and was hanging on by a few strands of wire

    I find my engine.turbo noisy at 70 or above anyway... The 1.8T is certainly not a quiet engine...

    my mates skyline used to have a loud high pitch whistle to it after it was rebuilt with steel impellers turns out it was a cowboy job of rebuilding the turbo!

    My S3 whistles a lot now with the GruppeM filter on it! i can almost make whistle a tune!

    That is the correct price for the CC Stage 1 for the 1.8T DBW while they have their 30% discount offer on. Had mine done Wednesday and couldn't be happier. Just make sure you have a spare coil pack as it seems quite common for the remap to show up faulty ones which you may not have known about prior to the map.

    Cool I did the same and have a couple in the boot.

    This does seem to be quite common that after a remap the coilpack or something else fails...hmmm. You have a CC, I have a CC, 1animal1 has a CC.....

    cheers guys, will have it done then at the end of may when hols are paid for!

    I was told that the cc offer will run for at least for 2 more months. however the guy i spoke to said that because of the uptake of the remap since the 30% discount was given, they (CC) may keep it at that price permanantly!

    Exactly. Having the price discounted makes people think they are getting something worth much more for a bargain price. If CC lower the price permanently then people will likely see it as an inferior product because its cheaper. It's a strange way to see things but a lot of people think "more expensive=better"
