Default 5th gear turbo whine?

I noticed today that my car, when in 5th gear, starting around 2300 RPM, I hear a whine sound that seems tied to the throttle. That is, when I'm on the gas, the pitch increases along with the RPM. As soon as I get off the gas, it goes away. Only mod is Cobb Stg1, logs all look fine.

Seems like it's probably the turbo spooling up, but why only does it only happen in 5th? Any inputs are appreciated.
