    Just spent the weekend at shell Island. Everything went fine for the first outing, although
    I'm wondering if there may or may not be a problem concerning the turbo.

    We were making our way up the steep incline on the A470, and i noticed a bit of a turbo whistle
    and slight "wine" under the extra load, but only while i was accelerating to get up the hill.

    Once i took the foot off, the noise went, and it only did it coming back up the other side on our return.
    other than that, it drove fine.

    Ive googled it, and it seems it might be a common thing on ducatos bearing in mind its lugging a bit of weight up a hill?

    A bit of a whine/whistle is quite normal, it ca depend on the weather condition I found damp air whined a bit.

    Thats some egg :)

    Funflair, your probably right, if it was doing it all the time i'd definately be worried,
    i suppose it didnt help that some plonker in a blacked out 207 decided to be a git and slow down going up the hill to make me change down a cog causing more strain...
