Strange one this, When i pull the throttle body, and let it go, i can hear the turbo rattle. Its sounds like i have left a bolt loose and the washer is rattling, but i havent, lol.... On spool up its fine, just as soon as i let it go? Now i think about it i havent heard my standard recirc, but am not sure. But the turbo has been machined out so not sure when its supposed to be heard??. I will be checking it all tommorrow... I dont think its play as the turbine was solid, didnt move at all........
Any ideas before i have a look????

You should still hear the std dump valve going off as normal.

Anybody help?!?!?!

Im getting really wound up with it now... The recirc seems fine as when pressed its spring back down, but i cant hear any whooshing noises?!?!? All hoses are fine no cracks.... The turbo has no play what so ever as i took the filter arm off, spun it round and its fine??!??!?! If the recirc wasnt working wouldnt it be chattering?!?!??!

Bit more on the rattle... It only seems to do it after 2k and it rattles as soon as i take my foot or finger of the throttle. But dies down straight away?!?!?

:confused:

Stumped is the word... :)

Did you find out what it was mate? Mine has started doing this since i got my screamer pipe fitted.
Yes buddy...


The divider on the elbow kept working loose as the threads are a tad big so the little bolts work there way out causing the divider to rattle when throttle is touched.. Solution - I got rid of the screamer, lol.
