the only thing i can think of is the turbo has a pressure leak or its going back from not getting oil then starting it.. and it spinning dry for a second.

Depending on how open your exhaust is, a slight whistle may be normal. Are you sure it's just a whistle and not a howl? If your worried about the turbo, take the inlet hose off and check the compressor housing for contact from the wheel, but like I said, that would be more of a howl.

Is the compressor inlets ducting intact (air filter to turbo)? I had mine take a dump, cracked in a not so obvious place, and my turbo's spool up resulted in a sort of whistling from the turbo area.

crazymadbastard, that turbowhistler made me laugh haha.

Our turbo whistled when we first got the GLHS going after sitting for 6 years.
Pulled the inlet hose to the turbo and found rat guts =)
