    when you lean over it sounds like there is a rumble coming from the turbo way, i have pulled the mani around and its not loose i cant locate any blows, the oil in the vid looks fresh but its sticky and been there a while, if anyone has any ideas theyd be much apreciated

    thanks.

    Also it sounds like the turbo whistle is a bit louder? Anyone know what may be the cause!? Thanks

    Much appreciated, is there a easiest way to go about checking them? Is it fairly simple?
