Default Argh Funny Sounds!!!!11

ok so now at like 10 vac to 5 boost my car makes the worst whirling sound ever. I think it is a boost leak and this is making the turbo work like 239048230942 times as hard and spooling way higher then it should. I can still get to full boost and the sound doesnt really get worse from like 7 vac to 5psi it stays about the same. I wish I could get a recording. So Friday I am going to re-do the ENTIRE JIM KIT with real slyicone and t-bolt's in hopes this will stop the problem. Is there anything else I should look at like gaskets or loose bolts that might be causing this problem? word to the wise **** THIS JIM GUY AND GET A STRIPES KIT **** DAMN. *edit had stripes had his kit out when I started buying parts i would have bought it in a heart beat this ******* bull-**** IC kit is ******* re-cockulous*

$10 says it's your couplers. Crank down on every single one of them, make sure you have no leaks.

Solution : Sell the Jim Kit on Miata.net and buy the stripes kit.
