do you have an aftermarket intake? some of my friends cars do that...must be the velocity of the air at a certain spot in the intake system?

If it's nothing bad then i guess i don't mind. I just wanted to know if it was normal or not. Seems like alot of people hear the same whistling noise.

I have a b16a2 in a 00 CX. My friend's 00 Si makes the same noise also. I don't know what causes it, but i guess it's not that bad.

not sure what causes it either, but i love the sound and is freakin loud. alot of people think i have some wierd turbo. i was driving next to a ford truck one day with a couple friends in it, and they said to pull over because they thought their power steeing pump went out on them when it was my AEM ;x haha
