    It's the turbo mate, completly normal. It's the same noise you hear when dump valves are fitted, only somewhat louder with a dump valve ;)

    Mine does exactly this even though its stock. It sounds ALOT like a turbo blow off valve, but for a stock tdi it is very noticeable. Never heard anything this loud in a tdi before.

    I keep thinking my turbo's going but love the sound and wish its healthy!:unsure:

    well...you should fix it, you might be losing some power and that could be the reason. there shouldn't be any leakings.
