That high pitch noise comes from the trickflow intake not the turbo and it only does that when its on idle.

heads- trickflow
cam- anderson B-41HR
exhaust/headers- Bg custom made the entire hot and cold side.
and believe or not it's not a PITA to get the turbo in there. BG Custom told me that it was actually easer to do the kit to a ranger than a mustang, yeah i know go figure right? lol

Its not that loud the camera makes it extremly loud. don't know why.
BTW is not the turbo making that noise its the trickflow intake and it only does that at idle.
