Current CAFE standards have pushed auto makers to increase fuel economy on new vehicles. With the rapid introduction of new smaller displacement turbocharged engines, consumers get V8 power while maintaining V6 fuel economy. Here are some industry predictions for turbochargers by 2020:
A Growing Market
Vehicle manufacturers are adding turbos at a double-digit rate. Over the next 5 years, the turbo market is expected to grow to more than 8 million turbocharged vehicles.
While Diesel passenger cars are the main consumers of turbos, gasoline-powered vehicles utilize them as well. Why turbo? Simple. Downsized engines are needed to meet new fuel and emissions standards. Turbos improve power and economy up to 40%.

If you hear whistling noises coming from the turbo, it’s likely due to an air/gas leakage caused by pre-turbine exhaust gas or air/boost leaks. Your first course of action should be checking all of the joints. If the noise continues, check the clearances and wheels for housing contact.
