Default 03 WRX weird sound from turbo?

So I picked up my 1st WRX a couple days ago. Keep in mind this is my 1st turbo. Newbie alert! There has been this weird sound that I think but really don't know, coming from what seems like the turbo. Is sort of a raspy dingyish sound...sorta. My mods are a Cobb downpipe, STi catback & Stage 2 93 tune. I have a couple videos displaying the sound & where it seems to be coming from. The previous owner said it might have something to do with the wastegate. I have no idea. Maybe it's just a downpipe leak? I know it's not coming from the rest of the exhaust. I have no CEL's. Although I do see a small lag of boost. That's it. I have no idea. Also, the car got a new OEM turbo at 175k (the car has 201k miles) Just see what you can diagnose from my vids. Thanks
