Help!!!! How come my R was squealing and whistling under heavy acceleration today? I drove about 200 miles and it was like 100 degrees outside.<p>It sounded like some kind of turbo or boost issue to me?<p>TY Brennan <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Sounds like a boost leak, check you IC hoses. Did the car have any power?

I broke into your garage on MON night, did some cable flys and poured Miller lite into your turbo <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> ...

I presume you mean "not really any power" If so, then check those hoses.

I know my R makes some whistling and other sounds in advanced mode and when I really have my foot in it...but I have a lot of power...you don't mention a lack of power????

With the new open air intake and in Advanced mode, I can hear the whistling too. Definitely no loss of power here and I didn't touch any hoses when I put this on.<p>Let us know what you find out, dub.

I checked my hoses and looks OK. I am bringing it to the dealer tom to take a look. It did have little power getting onto the highway today at one point.

Do the whistles go WOOT WOOT?....didn't you confirm Bub Rub and Lil' Sis have been working w/ Evolve on a whistle tip application for the R...you may have been fitted w/ the prototype

Re: Help!!!! How come my R was squealing and whistling under he ... (Husker Z)

Update!!!!!<p>So the pipe that runs under the air filter box that conects to the IC or turbo? had a crack in it. It is a black plastic tube that pressure is built in. I think? It cracked in a way that any boost that was collected into it from the turbo spooling mimicked a whistle when air forced out of it. The dealer said they have never seen it ever before.<p>I’m currently making and selling these so we can all go WOOT WOOT!!!! Hit me up if you want one<p>-Bub Rub<br><BR><BR>

Re: Help!!!! How come my R was squealing and whistling under he ... (JoeLvo)

that sounds like a sick product...I'll take one too....but, I also have a business proposition for you...I've been working on a device that makes my metal accordian center console thing hot enough to actually melt my forearm skin when the outside temp gets over 80 degrees...so far I've been close, but I'm positive stoves can get hotter... I know you '04 guys don't have the metal console, but that's my focus group....I've talked about it in another post, so I know I have support...with your crack whistle, and my forearm melter, I'm pretty sure we have the market cornered...IM me...
