Default Normal Turbo Noise? Stock 14' WRX (Video)

So as a first time owner of a turbocharged car, I've been wondering how loud the turbo should be in my 2014 WRX.

I thought the noise I was hearing was pretty cool at first but I never recalled hearing it in any of the videos I watched while doing research for this car.

To be clear the noise that I'm reffering to is the whoosing/hissing noise that can be heard under light acceleration. Just wondering if this noise is normal or could be the sign of an issue. Thanks

welcome to boost my friend... It's normal

However you shouldn't heard it that loud if it's using the stock intake box

You might have a leaking cold side coupler.

Thanks for the input, guys. I'll take it by the dealer and have them check for any loose connections.

Wait i had that issue with my 12 a few months back. My intake manifold was loose. They tend to be loose on these cars. It most likely just popped off. Not a bog issue but sounds really cool right.

the 2014's are pretty loud when they're stock, i was surprised that you can hear the turbo spool, and even the bypass valve during shifting. it's awesome.

completely normal, enjoy it
