  • Turbo sound

    Since fitting my courtney panel filter the engine sounds have been much more audible, but when the turbo is spooling up the sound is slightly metallic...does anyone else have this?

    Most noticeable when in second and not putting the foot all the way down

      I have....lol....just wanted to see if this noise is normal
      Sounds separate to d/v blowing off (LOL) but seems to be while the turbo is spooling but not fully accelerating

            I was the same as you when i had mine done as i had never heard it before, i thought it might have been a cyclic sound which its not.

                    I had this sound also but I had to take the panel filter out as it made me cringe, sounds like something was breaking.

                    when I questioned tho noone else said they had the sound so I thought it was bad.

                      When do you hear any noise coming from the turbo on a standard VXR?

                        I've only heard it since I put the panel filter on....only had it on about a week but judging from what people have said its normal
