Just like in the video, I don't hear it at idle, but as soon as I accelerate a little, it is there. I have opened the intake end of the turbo, but I can't detect any play or slack in the turbo shaft, and it turns easily without any binding that I can feel, so if it is the turbo making the noise, I can't imagine just how it is doing it. Is there any simple way to block the turbo for a moment, to see if the sound goes away?
