    Take off intake boot and wiggle the compression side. Up dwn and side to side. That will give you an idea if the bearings are loose

    Agreed. Check axial and thrust play. There is an acceptable amount. Is this rig stock? Do you have a boost gauge? Check play first if the turbine is eating housing so is your engine. If its whining id check all drive pullys too. Might not be the turbo.
