I think deadwood83 is correct, the sound you are hearing is coming form your throttle body. The cause is modifying your intake. Your factory airbox is designed to cancel this frequency out but installing a CAI intake or modifying your airbox will allow this noise to escape. I noticed the same noise on my car the minute I installed my first CAI, it was a AFE intake with the metal cover on top. Then I went to the Conforti intake which wasn't as loud but still has a noticeable whistle to it.
