I did some good ol' Google research and I am certain that what I heard is the serpentine belt chirping. Apparently I was correct. The engine goes from 5500 rpm to half that almost instantly and of course, all of the accessories that the belt turns have to slow as well. Makes perfect sense. Most have recommended a high quality serpentine belt such as a Goodyear Gatorback. I will probably throw one of those one whenever it needs one but until then I'm not extremely worried about it as my truck doesn't see too many WOT moments.
