    whine in third gear

    I have a 02 wrx with several modifications, most importantly a deadbolt super 16g turbo. Lately I noticed that there is a high pitched whine only in third gear, and only when the throttle is depressed. The whine increases in pitch along with the RPM's, but I really have no idea what this is. I don't remember hearing this for the first 9 months or so with the turbo. Any ideas??? Thanks in advance!

    ONLY in 3rd?

    check/change your gearbox fluid.. look at the drained fluid for metal/metallic shavings.. sounds like 3rd gear could be on it's way out..

    I just changed my tranny fluid recent, and am now using USC. However, the whine started long before I changed it. And yes, the whine only occurs in third gear.
