Default Turbo scream

So i have an 06 wrx... When im on the gas and the rps get to like 4.5 rpms it starts to scream... I was watching a video on youtube the guy had the same problem and he compared it to a squirals nuts being clamped by a vice... So my question is what could it be? I was reading that a bad uppipe leake could cause it, i was also wondering if it could be the turbo inlet

Most likely yes because usually when that happens the bearings are toast, but not always...

totally different sounds....if the wheel was hitting the housing it would sound like a circular saw ripping.....they are TOTALLY different sounds

OP has a bad gasket almost certainly at the top of the up pipe
