I searched and one topic said it was "cool" or something.<p>After putting on my EST cat-back (i have evolve AMS too) i get turbo whine after like 5K rpm. Am I right assuming this is normal?

Re: Compressor whine = normal? (mpdbrown)

Its normal when you put on a (TME) exhaust. You really hear it with combined with a (TME) downpipe. No need to go to 5K here. <p>It doesn't last long and I don't hear it constantly, usually just as I'm letting out the clutch or on hard acceleration.<p>At the lower RPMs, it sounds like someone whistling through a window fan or just a full blown whine on hard acceleration.<p>and yeah, I think its kinda cool <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><br><i>Modified by redalrt at 8:23 PM 5-28-2009</i><BR><BR>

I need to do an audio clip of mine--much louder than stock!

Re: (chinaonnitrous1)

Found my answer... If we're tuned by IPD now, does that mean we have to switch over to RICA to run the hybrid???<p>Sorry for hijacking OP. Put on a cutout and you hear compressor whine ALL the time.<p><BR><BR>
