Is it OK to run like this for a month or so? I really don't have the time to take the car in but if it is a big deal, I think I'll find the time. Boost pressure seems normal.
2. At WOT I hear absolutly no */C just a 3800 growl . Is this due to the fact that the EGR value (I think that'* the right part) is dumping the boost to keep from damaging the */C? I know this is not a problem but was just trying to expand my tech knowledge.
Thanks for any help
The squeak is most likely a belt or one of the tensioner pulleys. Not a typical SC sound.
Your airbox, and the resonator in it are the reasons you don't hear it. You need to gut that and go with a custom intake with a cone intake if you want to hear the whine.
Do a search on "whine envy" (search for all terms) in the Forced Induction forum, with me as the author.
