Stange loud noise when on boost....

Ok so I changed some old pipes for silicone ones yesterday and had to remove the intercooler. Now when I floor it and boost comes in you can hear it whirrr but then it sounds like a fog horn sound a really deep loud sound coming from I think near the turbo or airbox...

Any ideas what to start looking for?

Is your car still pulling as it should and is the problem literally just the noise??

Hi mate

it still pulls really well but with the noise I didnt want too rag it to hard.... It starts with what sounds like air escaping then goes like the fog horn bit later...

Sounds bloody awful...
