    that noise has dissapeared completely after the turbo replacement. its little over two months now since it was replaced. the sound was more like a whistle and very easy to notice

    hmm.. so there is absolutely no hissing noise at all.. of any sort?
    This is interesting now, i still hear some noise, not sure if its a leak or default turbo noise.

    Was there any ECU error related to Turbo boost ? & if you got turbo replacement without any ecu error thenASS seems very much co-operative nature. Coz many tata ass denys performance related problem by claiming"No any ECU error" So all is well.

    there was no ECU related error and neither any problem with the performance! the whistling sound was so distinct and prominent that they couldn't deny it

    so now even i have slight whistling noise.. what do i do?
    I just got the hose replaced , this noise comes only upwards of 3000rpm.
    I've heard this characteristic noise from all turbo engines when they are revved up to turbo capacity.

    if its present in other cars as well then it shouldn't be a problem! in my car the sound was very distinct from the usual sound in other cars. for confirmation wait till the tfi meet where we can compare the sound with other cars also.

    If there is any issue with the tubo shouldn't that have been detected during the diagnostic test that service guys run on ECU ? If not how can we pinpoint turbo issues like these ?
    Techies , Your inputs would be useful here.
    Thanks,

    I'm actually still interested in knowing a way to figure out turbo leaks..
    Because I've seen many turbo cars that have a whistling noise when turbo kicks in.
    This was the main reason i held back in thinking that I had a leak somewhere.

    I still have hissing noise at some RPM but everyone i speak to say its the turbo kicking in.. I'm not aware of what is the right answer here...
