Bent turbo fin or normal intake sound for a modded 8th gen?

So i've had my 8th gen si for a little bit now and it's always made a sort of air/whistle noise. It's not a full on train whistle sound or something but I think you can hear it if you turn the volume up enough on the video. It only does this when the turbo spools I think cause I made a video of me revving it in neutral trying to replicate the noise at all different rpms and it doesn't make the noise but maybe you guys can tell me. I know the quality is crap so I apologize. It hasn't effected the perfomance, at least not that I can notice. The dealership I got it from had it taken to a place around here in Raleigh, NC called J Mills Tuning. I guess he specializes in Honda performance stuff. He fixed an injector that was wired badly and then dynoed the car and said all was fine. Am I just being paranoid cause I've heard of people getting noises from intakes and downpipes. I know it has a skunk two exhaust along with the intake that comes with the turbo kit. Same with the downpipe. Im 90% sure the turbo on it is a garret t3.
