Sometimes I hear a whine after I am accelerating and quickly lift my foot off the pedal. It's brief and not too loud but I've never had a car that made such a noise. Is this normal with turbos?

Ever been near a semi on the highway?<p>You'll hear a whine on acceleration and muffled "pfft" of the recirc valve when you let up or shift.

And if you're lucky, a shotgun blast when you're changing gears. Dunno if GT's do it though. After doing the JRL mod mine does it so often it's hillarious.

Re: (stevectsai)

I just took a couple of buddies for a ROMP around my neighborhood. Some fast starts and lot of 3rd gear drops on the highway at 70mph. After they got out of the car both of them were simply amazed at the sound of the car under WOT. One of them said the car sounds like a jet! And felt like one too! This coming from 2 car guys was kinda cool. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">
