That is also the sign of

the turbo spooling up. Take off the intake ducts and check the freeplay (lateral and radial) at the compressor wheel nut. No play = good.

MAke sure the engine is turned off when you test the turbo. It spins even when the engine is at idle. The fins make really good slicers when in motion.

Yes, but it would make a great "Here's your sign!" moment.

You probably just have a leak somewhere in the exhaust system... normally you shouldn't hear it spool up (which is probably what the noise is). Does it not have power? Is it burning oil?

Mine whines, no exhaust leak either. U tube seals could be another story...
