    Strange noise from turbo after stage 2

    I have an 05 WRX with uppipe, catless downpipe, snorkel removed, and XPT stage 2 map and 30K. about 500 miles after these mods, I started noticing a strange noice from I beleive the turbo. Its a loud whining only while the turbo is spooling, and only after sitting for a few moments. Once it spools its gone. It almost sounds like the compresser side is full of oil. I havent takin it apart yet, just wanted to see if anybody has had/heard of this. I did some logging and every thing looks good boost is a little low and the car feels like its loaded up after idling for a few moments, yet the oil level hasnt moved and it doesnt smoke at all

    If its like a woosh wine then its just the turbo spooling. But if its happening while its spooling and a little bit after that you may have a boost leak.
