Hey, I was wondering this because of something that happened this week.

What would make a whistling sound come from a vr6 that is unlike that of a turbo or supercharger whistle?
Does the neuspeed exhaust give off a whistling sound or would some kind of intake do that?
It's boggling my mind right now.

I know db had a intake and Neuspeed exhaust and when he stomps on it there's a whistling sound around 5k rpm i think. or around there. but he does have a MK4.

It's not high pitched like a turbo or supercharger. It's more like a teapot whistle. It's not around at idle but it's there when he floors it. I heard it at a street race.

If you guys say it's the intake, then I guess that sounds about right, but one guy at the street races tried telling me that it was the neuspeed exhaust.

throttle body. my g60 started doing it after it was ported. usually starts around 2200, and last till ~4500. and it sounds almost exactly like a teapot.
kinda strange though, i've never heard of anything like it, besides from my car. hope it helps
