jeebowhite, one question about your split hose - did that fix some annoying turbo lag? I'm not liking how my car feels right now, apart from the whistle of course, but its not very responsive and turbo kick is felt higher in the rev range than it should (i think it should be around 1800rpm?) and for a tiny amount of time.

Have something to contribute?

To be honest it was slightly more the egr blank but the pipe made a further massive difference, in essence I got the car and if you look at my sig it shows you the power of my car from when I bought it to now. To be honest though we're talking in essence 50/50!

This happened to me. It was the fuel filter

Whooshing or whistling at boost pressure is definitely a split pipe.
Mine went a couple of weeks ago and sounded like a hoover kicking in.
It got louder until all turbo boost went and a fault light kicked in.
Ad long as I drove carefully and didn't boot it I was ok until it was replaced.
