Got a random question, usually one day a week for the entire day, when i accelerate from 2500-3500 the engine has a loud type whining noise, like i had a supercharger.
Almost sounds like im driving a gxp grand prix hard.

Seems like it might be lacking power slightly when it does it act up.

Anyone have a slight clue where to start or ever hear of this?

probably the power steering pump going out. It can make a sound like that.

I have a oil leak dripping on my belt and it makes that sound. Do you have a oil leak???

The way I meant it is those ghey little whistle things you can put in the exhaust. fake sc sound and turbo whistler go on the same level. I like the sound of a turbo, if its made by the real thing
