Whats this freaking sound!?!*****fixed!

Hey Folks,

So my car started making this weird noise. No codes, no errors, nothing. Even did a log, but nothing out of the ordinary. Just sounds like a whale's living under my car. Stated after the car hit a slightly lifted manhole cover, as I was accelerating out of an exit. Not the first time I've hit covers like that.

It makes this noise as boost builds/hit peak. Sounds like it coming from under the car, but I could be wrong. Does not make this noise when revved all the way to redline in neutral. Happens sooner in higher gear, if you step on it- Eg sooner on 3rd, than in 2nd, and so on.

Here's a sound clip. Sound comes around 17 sec mark

Let me know what you guys think

Thanks!


Update

So the FMIC T-clamp on the lower charge pipe slid up. Weirdly it didnt come off, just slid up, causing the loud whale like sound on boost. Surprisingly didnt cause any boost leak either, and it was tight enough the it could not be slid back in place.

In other news..My radiator decides it needed to start leaking, so thats getting fixed. Which is nice.

I had a similar sound, It was the stock turbo inlet that was not seated correctly on the turbo. It happened right after I went over a speed bump. You won't hear the sound while revving in neutral because it doesn't build the same amount of boost.

Thanks bud. Makes sense. I'm having it checked in the morning. I hope its something simple as that. I can replicate it when I build boost and let go of gas in higher gear, but its not as loud. If I rev it our in 3rd/4th its pretty freaking loud.
