i just got my new deck installed..pure sickness :D

but along with the new deck i got a bonus, sounds like my car has a turbo now... a nice high pitched whistle accompanies my engine rev, i heard a few guys talking about this before...saying its a bad ground or something? anyone know how to take care of it?

On the deck there is a ground wire. Attach it to a better ground . Also oyu can ground the case of the deck. If all else fails buy a noise supressor

could be alternator whine. I heard in the past that E30's were notorious with the bad ground. Best thing to do is reground the deck or you could just blast the radio all the time:cool:

Also make sure negative and positive wires are as far as possible from each other
