Default Strange noise

My parents 04 Gt has 77K miles, and is making a strange noise whn it is in gear and under load. Sounds like an old fan on an older car when you rev it. Is that the turbo going out?

Not much to go on. Turbos are generally reliable - do they use synthetic oil in it? They should. Check all the big hoses - could be a leak in the intake plumbing - to/from the intercooler.
