I had this on my last R while accelerating. Sounded like it had a supercharger Sad
Was the transfer box!
You havent replaced any of the belts recently have you? If on too tight they can whine

I'll have to see if I hear it when reving
Will check belts
If transfer box would it be a bearing or something else

I had it on my old rs and was the syncros in the box ... sounded like a supercharger lol .... but worth checking belts etc before you get all doom and gloom could be bearing or something on ps or alternator

Is the missus in the car when accelerating?? if so trying removing and see if the noise persists Laughing

In all serious though is it a high pitch whine?

Hard to tell how high pitched it is cause its not very loud

@nomad:
the whining in the RS probably drowned out the tappets ticking, lol! :p

If its just a belt you should be able to hear it with the car stopped and engine rev'd a little. If there's nothing to hear when stationary there then its maybe something a bit more insidious Sad

CVH oil sump is total bastard to fit and get oil tight.
I must've gone through at least 5 of those shitty elastic band type rubber gaskets just for it shat itself a week later in my xr3i. Loved the sound of it accelerating tho,
