    HELP....clarifying an u/p leak

    whats up guys....i installed an erz u/p and d/p combo on my 04 wrx and am runnin Cobb stage2...unfortunately i think i have a leak because i hear a cricket sound coming from the turbo....the cricket noise is not high pitched noise like a typical leak but a kind of clicking noise....so i do not now if it is an u/p leak or not

    is there anyone near the allentown area that knows what an u/p leak sounds like and if we could meet up so you could listen to my car to see if i have to take it to precision to be fixed....i just wunna make sure its a leak before i drive 2+ hrs to precision and find out i dont have a leak

    I high pitched bansee scream would describe an uppipe leak. I ticking or flapping sound is most likely the wastegate that you can hear better now without all the heat shields.

    i just dont know if its a leak or w/g flutter or not because its the 1st time ive put an u/p and d/p on my car...my friends that have or have had wrxs have turbo upgrades on their cars vf30, vf22 so i dont know if its normal on the stock turbo thats why i was wondering if there is someone by me that i could meet and have them listen to my car and that way they can just be like its normal or its a leak that way i can set up an appt w/ precision

    yo the more i think about it i think it might just be your wastegate. it would be horrible for you to take everything apart, put it back together, and then have a real leak.
