      Hey guys.

      Upon starting up today I noticed a quiet high pitched howl coming from the bay.
      It didn't start immediately.. It was about 30 seconds after it reached idle.

      My current mods are Carbonio Cai, Usp catless downpipe, stage 2 Giac flash, upgraded piston DV & the car is DSG.

      Any ideas what it may be? I'm gonna stop in my shop tomorrow morning to get an idea. If it's serious then I guess I'll swap out the downpipe and flash the stock software.

      Thanks in advance.

      is your motor a cbfa engine code? if so, im pretty sure its the sai pump. does it in my car too upon initial start up after it sits for a couple hours or over night. its like a loud blowing noise with a high pitched note at times. only lasts about 10 to 20 seconds.

      Mine is more of a constant high pitched howl. It does it warmed up or cold, sitting or not.
      Yes, my car is cbfa. It doesn't go away though.

      Just had the water pump replaced 500 miles ago under warranty.
      I wouldn't be surprised if it went again.

      well, it was the water pump again. Twice in 1000 miles.

      This time they replaced the pump, all seals and the timing chain. WTF

      If it sounds like this:

      Then it is your water pump. No doubt.

      Then it is your water pump going out again. I have the same problem. I'm on my third wp. It was replaced 3 weeks ago and now the sound is back. I have stated that we all should do something about this. An online petition for instance, but i would really need someone with technical background to write it. English is not my native lang and if this is to be done, then it has to be done right and for the sake of all VW TSI owners around the world.

      Nope. That's old news. 06H 121 026 AF is now superseded by 06H 121 026 BA but the problem is still on. In fact, i have the latest part rev. and it is making the high pitch sound again. 06H 121 026 BA did not solve the problem. VW/AUDI is supposedly working on a new revision now. No ETA so far though.....
