Exclamation Suspect turbo whine??


I own a cool grey Type R, V5 and having some strange whining noise from right around the turbo in the engine. Could this be bearings on their way out?

Cant think what else would be making that noise as water pump is at front and I have investigated it when stationary so doubt it is transmission whine.

Seems to follow the engine rpm, ie - more revs = more whine.

Performance hasnt been effected in anyway.

Anyone able to shed some light, past experiences??

Many thanks,
