    Steering? Brakes?

    Sounds like you got a whale in your gas tank. Wild guess but seems like there's something rubbing against a wheel or your e-brake is stuck.

    Thanks for the input, I drove to the airport and tried to recreate the noise but it didn't hum.

    Sounds like a boost leak. Check your charge pipe to intercooler connections. They remove and reinstall the intercooler when changing the radiator.

    This is what I was thinking, e-break.

    That, or the whale theory.

    Thanks for the input guys. The noise has subsided for now, but I do believe it is the ebrake... When the car is park on a hill and I push it it make a similar noise.
