    Hi,

    Had my S3 remapped at AmD a few weeks back, i've noticed that the turbos make quite a different noise now when booting it up through the revs. Is this normal? I'm pretty sure I've seen another post where someone mentioned that they can "hear the turbos working harder" after a remap which is I suppose what you expect - what suprised me was how different it sounded, which is why I am a little worried.....?

    Cheers,

    Kev

    Thought mine had a boost leak when it was done, high pitched scream.

    you should here morw whooshy whistle, but if there is any screeching, its the compressor wheel complaining! It wont last long if it is, so best to get it checked and be sure.

    No screeching with mine, but a definite increase in the growl from the turbo. Love it!
