    Unhappy Turbo whistle. Is that good?


    I have recently brought a 1997 wrx sti. When I really work the turbo hard, usually after 6000rpms, it makes a high pitched whistling sound, almost like its screaming! A friend reckons it means the turbo's about to blow and Im worried! Any suggestions?

    What mods, if any, does the car have? If it has an aftermarket downpipe, the turbo whine gets very noticeable at high RPM. If the intake is modified at all you can also hear it pretty clearly.
