Air intake on ... something whistling

I had a K&N Panel filter and my car whistled off and on when i hit the gas. I just put in a 9" cone and now it whistles a lot when i hit the gas. it makes that nice sucking sound (ahhh i love it!) but the whistle doesnt seem right. you think its a vacumn leak? i have no idea. air silencer has been removed for months. for the time being i just tell people thats my supercharger and im runnin 12 pounds of boost ... haha just kidding

I have the same setup, same sound with no leaks. It's a high whistle. You would notice a vacuum leak in the performance of the engine.

U know what's funny

I don't have that setup and i got that same whistle what it was on my car was the IAC valve had a crack right down the middle on the underside. When I replaced that and no more whistle. so just check that and if that's not it i guess that would be normal.

Mine whistles too. Not to worry if your car still performs well. I like the whistle. Makes me think I got a turbo.
