I thought turbo whine only lasted a short time and was considered the "spool up" then you hear "whoosh" and feel "power"
My car whines through the entire RPM range. Meaning if I stomp on the gas and the RPM is at 2k the whine will continue all the way past 6k. It this normal or do I have a leak?
The car is completely stock (2002 Jetta).

Re: how long does turbo whine last??? (1st SilverOne)

It will whine as long as you are gasing it. And no, the pshhh part isn't where the power comes in. That is actually when you let off the gas and it releases the pressure built up.
