Power Steering Noise

G'day Folks.
Me and and a few mates installed a Power steering set-up on my XF not long ago, but for some un-known reason it seems to be quite noisy ( makes a "shhh" sound and u can quite often hear it bubbling). The "shhh" noise becomes louder on full lock.
Its strange, b'cos u can really notice it within the cabin, almost like it is coming from the steering column (probally just my dud ears.)
Any Ideas?

I had that problem on my EB.

I found that by channing the pulley size and thus reducing the rotations on the pump it soon fixed the problem.

R u also sure you have used correct power steering fluid?
