Do you guys have loud whistles coming from the throttle body? Especially when it's cold. It's distinctly coming from the TB. I'm hoping it's not just me, and could possibly be a vacuum leak. I'm going to check it tomorrow, but, there is a kid in shop with me that has a 5.2 and it whistles, very distinctly as well, but not nearly as loud as mine does. I notice that even when it's warm, I'll lay into it a bit, and then come out of it and the whistle pops up for a second and disappears.
