Turbo 'howl'?

I have an 07 Wrx and ever since i got it about 6 months ago when i hit about 120 mph and sometimes about 100 mph i hear a 'howl' and it sounds like its comin' from the turbo. I'm not worried about it or anything I was just wondering if anyone knew what it was for sure. thanks.

or maybe...high air flow hitting the ic?

Im almost positive it is the side mirrors whistling. Lots of people have had this "problem". Also keep in mind that you get a lot of noise from the windows because they are frameless, so it is an "all over" noise.

also keep in mind that I we all hope this speed is reach at a track only, please do not do that on public roads. But yeah, it could be the mirrors, they are about as aerodynamic as a shoebox

Wow, it can turn well too?

Sounds like the mirrors to me as well. First time I hit those speeds I heard the sound you are describing and it scared me so I shut it down. My turbos still fine after 4 years.
