Default Anyone with Noise after ACCESSECU STG 2

HI everyone,
After I installed my accessecu stage 2, I noticed that after I shift to different gears especially 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd that I hear a really soft whistle noise coming from the engine. I can't hear it when i'm wot cause my exhaust drones everything out, but under normal driving I can hear it. It doesn't seem to affect performance, but its just an annoyance. Is this normal? i don't know what would cause something like that. Let me know if yuo have any input. Thanks.
Scott

It's your wastegate. I'm guessing you yanked the intake resonator. You would hear this without the Access ECU.

Ya, sounds like it might be the turbo LOVE that sound, and once I pulled the snorkus off, it became really apparent. From what I have read, if it was an exaust leak, it would be more then a little whistle
