    It can whistle but that doesn't necessarily mean the compressed air is actually being fed into the engine.. are you going by the sound or do you have a gauge that shows what psi you are actually making?
     
    Ladytrukr Thanks this.

    Should be 4 boots and two pipes. Also check the lines going to your air compressor.

    Ya
    Spinning like hell and not returning the boost to the engine

    I think maybe I was thinking this can cause turbo overspeed

    Stop driving it. You will burn up your turbo if you stay on the throttle
     
    Ladytrukr Thanks this.

    So should I get off of 73s or sit and wait for a tow?

    I'm not sure you need tow yet. Company driver ?
