Default Turbo whine...

Have had my '05 GT Vert for a little over a month, everything seems to be running great, plenty of power, etc. I've seen others talk about a turbo whine, but I don't hear any whine no matter how hard I get on it. Is this a sign of something not right with the turbo?

Not at all. Just drive it and enjoy it. I don't hear it in my 03 either.

Thanks, chuzz--the only other turbos I've owned are an F-250 SD with the 6 liter powerstroke turbo diesel and a MB sprinter with the 3500 turbo diesel. You know when the turbo kicks in with both of those, especially the truck. So I guess we have a stealth turbo in the PT.

I feel mine, but I sure don't hear it like I did back in 84 when I had a first generation turbo in my 84 Laser XE. Maybe I'm just 31 years more deaf!
