Default Squeaking!!!

has anyone else experienced squeaking? It only happens when i drive for a little bit, then every once in a while it squeaks... and it is so annoying. I have a BTG intake, mopar BOV, and the borla duals. I know for a fact it isnt the new exhaust system. the exhaust just carries the sound from the engine. My friend who installs everything on my car and knows a lot about turbos suggested that it was probably a spring in the turbo that when it gets heated... expands, then squeaks? Any info will be great! Please tell me i am not the only one!!!
thanks in advance

How many miles you got on there? Could be a belt starting to fail, or one that has a bad spot on it. My gas pedal squeeks. And my clutch pedal kinda squeeks. Oh yeah, and my windshield squeeks over bumps. Kinda like convertible cars do. Any of those sound like the source?

My gas pedal and hatch squeeked; fixed with some wd-40.
A belt in the engine squeaks when I go fast through large puddles on rainy days.

[:I]I have a squeak for about 3-4 minutes after I start it up. Can;t figure out what it is. It is intermittent and sounds like it is coming from the engine compartment????

there is a TSB out on intermitten sqeak or chripping sound coming from the engine area. It has to do with the mis-alignment of the power steering pulley if I remember it correctly.

If it was mis alignment due to power steering pulley, would that mean i would only hear it if i am turning? because after a hard run, i hear it when it is parked.

the squeak is constant after a long drive and you can't hear it at startup. That seems the case with my PT

That's probably because the belt is hot and stretchy, which puts a little slack in the system.
