The stock turbo on my car makes a whistle sound when spooling up that should be normal correct. I have no aftermarket BOV.

perfectly normal

and even if there's no BOV, there's still a diverter, which is audible to some degree, depending on whether or not the intake muffler is on the car, and how effective it is

As long as it doesn't turn into a loud high-pitched squeal you're ok.

I signed in with the name of SENTRA95 a long time ago. I did use to have a Sentra, but now I have an 89 Supra that I bought just a few months ago.

If I could dynamat a turbo, I would.

I hate that spool up noise, it sounds so cheap. Especially sitting next to a n.a. big block V8.

Normal, but unfortunate.

I knew the whistle from the turbo was normal, but this is what made me think I was wrong VVV.

On a V8 GAS, yes supercharger whine is nicer.

On a V6 or smaller or a diesel, Turbo whistle is better.
