Default Exhaust leak or paranoid?

How obvious would an exhaust leak be? Did my up pipe and down pipe finally and everything seems fine but...

I can hear all the airflow better but there is this ever so slight whine/whistle that I can sorta hear over the intake as boost comes on under POT and then dissipates or is drowned out by 4k rpm. Under WOT it is just pretty much the nice rumble I would expect with no whine.

I have removed the snorkus and have a velocity stack routing air from the fender to the stock airbox.

I think it is just hearing the turbo and airbox better and that I am being paranoid with all the exhaust leak horror stories.

You're paranoid, think about it... You've removed 2 cats and have most likely added a huge bellmouth downpipe. I was the same way but you will get used to it. An up-pipe leak is truly distinctive, kind of sounds like a machine gun, if it's slight it will be only under boost usually. Good luck.

You likely are hearing the turbocharger more clearly, but what is this POT business?

I would definetely recommend staying off the POT and the sounds your hearing should go away

POT = partially open throttle

I agree stay off of it - just go wide open.

Thanks hope I am being paranoid and trying to imagine something that isn't there. I have never had an exhaust leak, but never did work on a turbo exhaust before this either.
