Parts for tip turbines will have to come from a dismantler or truck scrap yard.  PAI might have gaskets/seals?

Quite a few tips, including mine, have a pretty good whistle when your foot is on the floor.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.

Pretty sure it's the turbo you hear whistling, not the tip turbine.  Tip turbines don't really spin all that fast I don't think.  Not fast enough to make noise at least.  Most Mack turbos have a nice whistle to them, let's you know it's alive and well!  Don't know if this is a new to you truck or one you've had a while now with a new symptom.
