err... ill try to answer but dont take this for granted. here's what i got from an article:

the percordium is not always quiet. only in 1/3 babies. the rest, usually there is a systolic murmur due to ventricular septal defect that accompanies the TGA. TGA without VSD would result in immediate cyanosis n death --> incompatible with life.

here's the article, if u have more time to read it in detail pls tell us what else u got from it. thx
