Question turbo sounding like its super charged Gen 2 speed

hi guys I need help. i have a 2010 madaspeed 3. I just have a GFB BOV. my turbo when its winding up. its making a "super charged" noise. I bought the car about 3 months ago. i have driven other gens and mines it feels its not as fast as the others. I'm not sure whats going on. i have yet to buy a turbo because some mechanics are saying its a bearing. i just want to hear your thoughts.

Stop driving the car.
Replacing the turbo is cheaper than replacing the motor, which is what you will be doing if the turbo disintegrates at speed and ingests broken bits of bearings or vanes.

You can get a rebuilt K04 on Ebay for less than $200 and swap it out in about 4 hours with hand tools. It won`t last forever but probably longer than the one on your car now if it`s about to give up the ghost.

That is, of course, if it`s not something as simple as a big boost leak. Throw your stock BPV on and see if the noise changes.
