Default Sounds like a turbo

After removing all my dead AC components which didn't work anyway, the engine now has a whirring sound in lower gears / lower speeds prompting someone to ask me if my truck had a "turbo" .. any thoughts on why it suddenly has this sound? (Also have replaced both belts)

Belt tension. My timing belt sounds like a gnarly blower. Always has. Doesn't seem to matter with mine. Its only been that way for the 100k miles I had the truck and with 3 timing belts.

^^ i think he meant DOESNT seem to matter.

my accord was set a little tight so i backed it off a wee for peace of mind. under heavy/high rpm loads the belt takes a whole lot of stress/force on it. i dont want the belt all loaded up for no reason at idle

Another vote for too much belt tension.

Checked the belts and they seem tight. It only squeals for a moment or two at start up and not every time. Would you recommend I loosen the belts some?

4 cylinder? use gates or goodyear belts. the 4cyl is notorious for belt noise.
