NA all the way!

I'm sorry. That was no help whatsoever. I'm just very happy that Lewis won today. Someone will be along shortly with the right answer

My turbo hose swelled up when I reved it and TBH its normal upto a point..... Mine was more that i thought normal so I changed it and mine has the normal turbo whistle abet a little louder than most but I expect you have a small bit broke from your impeller, if its not to loud then I expect its ok I had a verry loud whistle on my last car and on looking a tiny bit from the end of one of the fins was chipped off but it went onfor another 60,000 miles and was ok when I sold it
