most 4Ls with "awesome supercharger whining sounds" after a cam install are a short time away from a timing chain tension related failure :P

my 5L makes a really loud ear piercing supercharger type whine and a PSSHT when you back off, i dunno what it is, might be related to the vortech in the engine bay, not 100% sure? :lol:

I used to drive to sydney and back everyday in a 1.3 litre deawoo, i ripped that car so hard just trying to get it up to speed, and reving it out in all the gears. After a while i started making that turbo or supercharger noise. I doubt its a good thing.
