Thanks Brandon, that's the word I was looking for. But I still think its the WG. Try hooking it ip for max boost first Tav. And listening to it again. And from my memory. I think its just the WG dumping boost , at the set pressure. At 10 psi you just don't hear it as loud , at 18+ things start to get serious. you here the pressure dumping. You can try turning It up some more. At 21 or 22 psi. You won't hear that noise until the WG opens and starts to dump.

I installed a drain plug on the bottom of the Intercooler. Drain out any oil that is in it. Use some brake cleaner spray. That should stop it from smoking.
