    New intercooler weird sound.

    I put new topmount intercooler on today. Twice as big as stock it makes high pitch whirlling sound I have stock turbo. Is this normal?

    Check your connections i.e clamps, tubing. Is it really twice as big as the stock?

    I knwo with an aftermarket downpipe the sound of the turbo spooling will be more prominent but i don't think an aftermarket topmount will cause a high pitch whirling though.
