    my 05 r12x has this noise at different constant throttle ranges. never hear it when turning though. i was thinking of rebuilding the jet pump it kinds sounds like it could be drive train noise.

    The turbo will make a crashing noise when it is developing a lot of boost and then the throttle closes and the boost has no place to go, so it crashes into the compressor wheel. It is normal.
