"choo choo" or dose is compressed air from the turbo "bouncing" off the throttle body and reentering the turbo causing the compressor wheel to spin backwards making the hektic choo choo noise and the zuuuuu that hammo is refering to is the turbo sucking in the powers of the car gods and farting them into the intercooler
