 physically remove boost pipes to check for split,also  a trick to try to look for a leak is get a bottle with a spray squirty nozzle on it put a dose of washing up liquid in it and top it up with water,start car up and get someone to rev it while you spray all boost pipes and intercooler with solution,if leak is present you will see it blowing bubbles.also a cat convertor can whistle if it has broken up all things a garage should of checked.

Got the problem sorted, turns out a gasket had moved slightly when a nut was tightened, causing a small opening, which in turn caused the whistling, turbo is now properly sealed and that annoying whistling is now gone. Thankyou everone for all the replies.

Glad you got it sorted - ive got the same problem as ive sheared one of the bolts that fix on the EGR cooler - no rush to fix it and  i quite like the noise it makes anyway - got to fix it sometime as it increases lag

Can't beat a bit of turbo whistle! Sad I know, but I sometimes turn off the stereo, wind the windows down, and just enjoy the noise!
