Turbo noise?

First off let me say i do not have a turbocharger in my carf but for some reason it sounds like i do. Whenever my rpms start to go down i hear a whistling noise. It just started a couple of days ago but it was really cool at first but now it is just annoying the shit out of me and anyone that rides with my. I have only put exhuast on my car and that is it. Its a stock 2000 GT.
thanks for your help.

My celi use to make a noise like that and it turned out it was a recall part around the belt area that need to be changed out..I would take it to yota to have it looked at...just to make sure nothing is wrong!

what exhaust did you put on? the whistling sound could be coming from the 2 flanges where the exhaust and mid-pipe bolt up near the rear passenger side wheel. Turn the car on, and feel for exhaust leakage, if it is leaking, take your car to a muffler shop and ask them to put a gasket in between the 2 flanges.
