    Sounds like an air leak mate - check the work you done to ensure its properly sealed and no airs getting in...

    Damn you should hear mine whistle & its only a TDI, mines turbo related & its fairly common thing on turbo's overall I believe after a while & if you've been hammering it.

    Might be a loose pipe but if you've got full power still seems unlikely its an air leak, any noticeable loss of power at all?

    wow thanks for the reply guys
    no theres no air leak and its at full power deffo NHN, its idling from 9000 to 14000 up and down and a little jerky so iv connected back up again and its still doing it now and still full power , id like to keep the blank on as its reccomended by a few guys on vagoc and doesnt affect it ''aparently'' so im unsure what the idling problem is now 'sigh' ....the engine warning light was on too but reset the ecu and thats off now, i wanna get to the bottom of the idling problem before blanking the PCV again
    any ideas kaz ? u seem knowledged up lol thanks
    Oh and the whistles gone now too but i hope it wasnt serious

    Mine whistles now but when i changed the IMF flap over, a seal between the egr and imf pinched and let air it. It whistled a lot louder.

    But normal turbos do whistle - mine was just a lot louder with the air leak and really juddery!

    But after myt remap, the turbo did sound different - a higher pitch whistle!

    When the turbo is running at full power / temp for multiple runs I'd guess there could be a few things that may happen:

    1) Audi may have built in a fail safe to protect the car under certain parameters which causes the car to behave differently when it reaches certain temps / revs (you haven't taken it too far beyond 7200 I hope!)

    2) You have the startings of a boost leak which is accentuated under very high boost / temperatures. Once you car cools, the leak point returns to 'normal' (of sorts), and if the leak point gets bigger, so will the problem

    ALWAYS remember to warm the engine up considerably (around 12 minutes), and then COOL the turbo down (ie don't just switch off the engine after a rag - let the oil circulate round the system to cool things down a bit) by driving the car at normal rev ranges for 3-5 minutes after a 'heavy' session.

    I take it the car is throwing no DTC's?

    ur right mitch haha why on earth i said 9000 to 14000 is beyond me haha of course i meant 900 to 1400 silly Dan altho a busa engine would be great haha my zx10r would go 14000 it did today anyways

    theres no DTC's mate but iv found the idling problem i took the spacer out of the forge DV and it lowered it a little and it split the pipe closest to the fan its connected now and goes great again the whistle stopped by itelf so i think one of your options was right warren
    big air leak, possibly why a porshe boxter just kept up with me gggrrrr tarty ba*tard lol
    iv redirected the actuator now so no pipes are close to the fan i was under the bonnet in the dark the other night so missed that split pipe somehow.....big sigh of relief

    Well done mate, it's always horrible searching for boost leaks on turbo's as in the back of your mind you are always hoping its not the tubby thats on the way out!!

    A SEAT dealer wanted to replace a turbo on my last LCR (18 months old, 14,000 miles). Quoted an estimate of 3,700 for the job when they called to tell me their diagnosis of my boost spike issue (not warranty covered as car was modified). I disputed it, had it towed to an independent specialist, and after 10 minutes Vince at Stealth Racing noted the DV had a crease leak in one of the hoses that the dealer had failed to find in 3 days. Bunged him 25 in beer money and job was a good'un.

    Does it sound like a dump valve but a lot lower?

    I'm pretty sure thats normal as mine does it.

    Mine does it most when you accelerate to when the turbo just kicks in and you can feel the tourqe just kicking in and then lift off, it makes that noise more. im pretty sure this is normal.

    My wife had a Revo'd Ibiza TDi FR running 168bhp. Went like stink, just didn't stop well (I warped her discs really badly!). Needed better suspension, brakes, and clutch.

    Dan. 165mph on a pubic road? Are you mad, stupid or both??

    I don't think you'd stop in time for someone crossing the road

    Where I agree that the speed mentioned is somewhat stupid & idiotic tbh, I dont think any of us can start criticising another member for speeds, I hazard a guess we all break speed limits daily which if we're honest wouldnt stop in time for someone crossing also so kinda kettle black springs to mind.

    Ok, So your agreeing with me then??

    The only critisizm I made was that doing 165mph was mad and stupid and you agree with me (see above)

    We can both the black pots together then

    Another point worth noting:

    Its not the best idea to start bragging how fast you went last night in Alnwick wiv yer mates, theres probably some low life grass on here waiting to let the coppers know what your up to.

    Just a bit of friendly advice

    That's shocking - to think another enthusiast on a car forum would raise this to the police without speaking to the original poster first.... that's ****** in my opinion!
    I'm not saying I condone that sort of thing, but I guess in these sort of places you'd like to think you're with like minded people who would confront you directly rather than call the police...

    Yeah I'd agree, why do people have to be so ****ty huh, if they had problem with there speeding they should of told them directly, but that Golf totally owned that RS4, does this start the old S3/RS4 row on a whole new footing, lol
