I have been hearing a slight siren noise in very low rpms when the car is not up to temp (210). This is upon any acceleration, although, it is more loud upon heavier acceleration. The noise is comparable to the full cycle of a siren: whirring up, and all the way back down. I'm hoping that my turbo (GTRS) isn't on its way out! Any input would be much appreciated.

I am pretty sure that's what that nosie means. Turbolady is singing her siren song.

if I had to guess, I'd say the turbo is on the outs.
