Hi,

I have a 2017 Giulia Ti Q4. I recently started noticing a slight raspy note to the engine noise coming from the hood when actively accelerating past 4500 RPM in 3rd or 4th gear. It only occurs around that specific RPM.

Has anyone else experienced this? Normal or cause for concern?

Turbo spooling?

We have a 2017 Ti Q2 (RWD) and have never noticed any raspy noises. I'd suggest a trip to the dealer. The mechanic can take a quick listen to your car and determine if it's normal or not. (We can't hear your car.) You can also take a quick trip in one of their demo cars and determine if they seem to be the same or not.

Turbo spooling?
Turbo should be fully spooled by 3,000 RPM. It should start spooling around 2,500.

Hmm. That's true for my performance tune. LOL, I can't remember now when the stock tune starts spooling.

You've got some great advice here, Chymerix. If you do decide to get this looked at by the dealer, don't hesitate to connect with us. We can get a case created and escalate for further handling before the servicing process starts.

did you ever resolve this issue? i'm getting similar noises on my '17 Giulia but is more like a computer fan hitting the frame, only at a certain high acceleration...

I can't remember actually. I think it may have just gone away on its own.

Hi, I'm sorry to hear this. Please let me know if you plan on visiting a dealership for this concern. I would be happy to open a case for you.
