    Nope, you're still in the feedback and testing forum but that's ok. I've moved your posts into their own thread within Talk section of the Fox Body forums.

    So now.... you're in the right place. :nice:

    Ask away.

    Welcome!
    Can you elaborate on the whistle? Does it get louder as the rpms or speed increase?

    I have a similar issue at a certain rpm or throttle condition...haven't pinpointed it yet, but kind of think its egr or tb perhaps? (edited after above post)
    And I have a BBK 70mm TB....is that a known culprit? and to think I actually worked for them at one point many years ago

    It's a very common problem with the BBK's. I am a lucky one and don't have the whistle, but I've heard of many cases where it was the culprit

    Think I had the same issue a few years ago, and replaced IAC....now it started doing it again, is that all the longer these things are good for?
