That's your turbo! :) How loud is it? If you are down on power, there could be a leak somewhere in the hoses?

It does sound like a turbo hose has split, is it also a bit more smokey than usual? (not saying that they're usually smokey :lol:)

Mine started doing it again at the weekend, I noticed it taking off from a toll booth (I can only hear it when the window is down).
