    thats the awesome turbo sound!

    or possibly a leak, probs just the turbo now, the old box had like a silencing effect.

    Thats exactly what I was gonna say Red. It could just be the noise of the intake as certain makes of intakes make weird noises like whistling/darth vader noises.

    I can confirm mine makes a good whistle as well. Along with the "darth vader" noise as described above. If you have not had a CAI before it can be a bit alarming.
