    Hello Andy,

    The turbo will whistle when spooled. An alternator whine will be present regardless of whether the car is in boost or not, whereas the turbo will make the most notable noises in its range when the car is making boost.

    Revving in gear or if the car is in neutral? The WRX transmissions seem to be a little loud as far as noise goes. Even my 2010 is pretty noisy. It could be something normal that you didn't have in your previous vehicle. If it is whining OUT of gear it could be a bigger issue (ones stated above ^^).

    Turn off the motor, let the car cool, and remove the belts to examine the pulleys. Replace what's noisy and get new Subaru belts if you do this.
