    Is this not just normal turbo whistle?

    How long have you had the car?

    So you just get this noise while idling?
    Does it happen when stationary or when moving?

    Meatychi, the turbo won't whistle at idle on any car.

    maybe its your air con then! Is it coming from behind your centre console and under the dash?
