Is the turbo supposed to sound weird?
Since mine has the delete pipe on it, there is nothing restricting the exhaust sounds. When I start it, I hear the normal turbo spool sound, but as it idles it makes a weird sucking sound. It has been years since I had my 7.3, and I sort of recall it making a sound other than the whine at idle when cold, but nothing like this. Is it supposed to do this?
It kind of sounds like a shop vac with a piece of paper stuck in it.
