Default Whistle at take-off

Hey guys. I don't know if this is the right place for this or not, but I've been hearing a noise on my truck. It is when I first take off most of the time, seems like mostly around 2k-2500 rpm. when it reaches these rpms, it will whistle, then quits when I either let off or if it shifts gears. Then, sometimes in 2nd it will do it around the same rpms. It doesn't sound like something rubbing or nothing, and it seems like it only does it, or at least does it worse when it's really cold outside.

I love my loud whistle at all RPMS!! Cummins Power Whistle of course!

Where does your whistle SOUND like it's coming from? Hood? front? Back? side? Thru your Speakers?

you really can't tell, but it sounds more like either under the front end or under the hood. It's not like a dog whistle or nothing, sounds more like backfeed from a microphone. I can't figure it out for the life of me

this is happening to me now. but i think its because of my cold air intake. I am still playing with it. I just changed my spark plugs and thats why I messed with my cold air intake. do you have one on yours? im still trying to fix mine.

I got the same whistle sound coming from under the hood of my 2007 ram 1500 5.7. Just got the truck about a month ago and thought just thought it was normal
