sounds like a vacuum leak at the booster.

Sounds like a noise as if somethins shorting out think i've found whats the matter anyway bud cheers. http://bbs.scoobynet.com/general-technical-10/868584-boost-solenoid-clicking.html

Mine had the same problem before and after an engine swap and then it just stopped after the third or forth time of starting. No leaks just the very loud clicking like higher cc injectors. But stopped on its own. I haven't checked yet if it's holding boost as still tweaking the car after the swap but will let update this once I have.
