hey guys, just as the topic said.. i was driving in 2nd gear today on the way home and kinda punched the gas (because my check engine light went off, i knew my car was running good today!) and i hadn't gotten to put that pedal down in a while so yeah, i did it. and when i did, there was a pretty noticeable whistle type noise (sorta like when you whistle through your teeth with your tounge and you can hear the air and the whistle)..... so is that a vacuum leak? because it was pretty loud. as i kept driving, it didn't happen anymore but it did a few times. let me know guys!

no im pretty sure it was something like a vacuum leak.. it didn't sound like air going through the filter. it was alot louder and it had a high pitch whistle.

I have the same thing. But if it's a vacuum leak would'nt the car run like crap? My whistling sound is accompanied by a sucking air type sound and leads me to believe it's just something in the airflow. And it runs friggin great! :thumb:

yeah its to loud to be coming from the filter. it sounds like a squeaky pulley but i already checked them all. could it be my intake spacer not making a good seal?
