Hey guys! I have kind of been snooping around these forums for awhile now, but anyways I finally pulled the trigger and bought a 2016 Forte5 SX.

After about 4 days I have started driving with the windows down and noticed a whining noise that could possibly be from the turbo. Being this is my first turbo I do not know if this is normal or not? Any help is much appreciated!

a video maybe so we could understand? maybe another engine component just operating. if you know how turbos sound than you might be able to tell if it is a turbo or not.

I'll try to get a video it only does it when I start to hit wide open throttle so it get pretty loud in general.

there isn't too much knowledge on the 16's on the forums that i know of. so maybe something has changed. a whining noise would sound more like something with an engine component other than the turbo. a video would definitely help and maybe another forum member can better help. do you got any mods?

No it's completely stock and only has 300 miles on it so that's why I doubt it is a major issue and could possibly be normal.

The video was unsuccessful to much wind noise to pick it up through the mic, tomorrow I will try it parked and see if it still does it.

There are all sorts of noises coming from the 1.6 GDI Turbo engines, lol. If you can get a video, I am sure we will be able to help sort the noise.

Thanks,

Turns out the whine I think came from the crappy hose clamps that the factory installed for the restronater delete pipe.
