O.K.......what is this noise??

I recently just put on my TBE, now when I`m at a dead stop & rev the engine a lil it makes a weird noise SOMETIMES. & it`s not spool or just the usual sound of more air flow, kinda sounds like somethin is loose shakin inside of somewhere?? it is a low faint noise but was never there before, noticed it after I put the Dp on?? still runs strong & everything is normal?? Any & all recomendatios would be appreciated

Did you check for exhaust leaks? That might be a possibility.

Probably just a rattle. The DP must be hitting something. Look under there again and make sure it's clear of other parts. If not, unbolt, and re-position.

I have that noise in my car as well. I just take it as noise that was always there, just getting muffled by the cats and heat shield. Just check your system over again, making sure that nothing's loose or leaking.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

You might want to have someone look at it. It's now soundng like you've got a few things that could be wrong, it's time that you bite the bullet and have it checked out. We can throw guesses at you all day, but until you have it looked at you won't know for sure.

There is a small oil line that goes into the bottom of the turbo. When you put on your DP you may have loosened the connection if you manhandled your turbo around to much. Grab a mirror and a flashlight to see where its comming from. Remember that oil doesnt usualy leak up so find the highest point of the leak and start in that area.

if it is oil leaking, would that still mean that the noise he is getting is related to it? cause i am getting a squeeling noise when i accelerate in 2nd and 3rd when the car is not completely warm. when the car is hot i never get it. weird. but it sounds like it is coming from the turbo side of the engine compartment.
