I don't know why but sometimes when I turn on the AC and I give it some gas going down the road it seriously sounds like I have a turbocharger installed. I pulled up to my friends house yesterday and he said what the hell do you have in there cause it sounded like a turbo when you pulled up.

Any idea why the AC makes that happen?

Using A/C forces the cooling fans to come on. Check for any blockage or damage, it shouldn't really be too loud...

There is no blockage. I can put the air on high and it blows like I've never seen A/C blow before. Plus its just as cold as ever so there certainly isn't any problems with blockage or the coolant. Any other suggestions?

never heard of any problem like this before. No idea what it would even sound like, I'd have to hear it myself to even hazard a guess.

Well all I know is my friend said he heard is Whistling like a turbo when I pulled up. I've heard it in my car but it not a bad sound I actually like it lol.

I meant to check around the radiator fans, the radiator and in front of it - nothing to do with interior airflow. If the noise is related to the interior air it could be blocked/fouled from where it sucks air under the wiper area. My car sucks leaves down in there sometimes.
