Having a '08-'11 car & using steeda's sri gives you the option to get more hp/torque w/ a tune & the insert removed.

maf car

best part of having a mass air flow car vs alpha n or map tuning stratagys is that they respond well to mods the car can see the increase in flow and add fuel without a tune as long as you don increase flow to much such as forced induction

Yeah, It sure makes it easier to add a bigger cam & heads on a speed density 5.0 to change it to a mass air flow.

The whistling is probably from the throttle body being half open since you aren't flooring the car. Not an issue.
