    Typically after 3-3500rpm...

    Where is the grinding coming from? When does it happen?

    Mods?

    I would definitly take it back to the dealer for an inspection, i assume it has some warrenty on it. Grinding of any sort cannot be good. When does it happen?

    yeah it seems like it. it only happens when i accelerate and the rpms hit 4500. im gonna go get it checked out sometime soon by my mechanic. i know the turbo doesnt have a warranty on it but the engine still has like 4k miles on the warranty

    Why would the turbo not have warrenty but the engine does?
    If you have no mods as you stated, your car should have a warrenty on everything. Assuming you havent turned 60k on the clock
