You are not going to hear the turbo until you build boost, which only happens under some sort of open throttle (accelerating exhaust gases spinning the turbine and such). It is just going to flow through at idle, since there is not enough velocity from the exhaust gas to spin the turbine.

you might hear it at mild throttle if you're running an open downpipe that's recirculated. oter than that, no you won't hear it at idle.

hell my turbo doesn't even spin at idle.

You gotta have a small ass turbo to hear it at idle with smaller engines. That's why I laugh when hondas pull up and you can hear them spooling
