Thanks for the replies so far.
I've done a couple of hundred miles now since I've had it back and the VSA light is still on. None of the other sounds have got any better either.
The four main issues of concern after getting it back from Honda were:
1 - Whirring/whining noise that sounds like it is coming from a belt or something
2 - Whooshing sound coming from the turbo (not the normal noise the turbo makes, but a strange one - almost like it is dumping as it is boosting!!)
3 - Distinct lack of power possibly down to the turbo kicking in late (if it kicks in at all!!) especially under load
4 - VSA light on constantly
It is now back at Honda, so hopefully they will sort all the problems out. I had it in there for 2 hours the other day and the mechanic didn't really have a clue what it could be - didn't fill me with much hope! One of his responses was "I've even started pulling off hoses which I know I put back correctly"...another was "the VSA has got nothing to do with what I was doing"... Hmm, strange how the light is now constantly on.
I've told them to keep it until the problem is sorted. If they do actually tell me what the problem is, I'll post back.
