Question AEM Intake Whistle?

Does anyone else have a whistling noise eminating from their aem intake? The closest thing i can use to describe the sound is a blow off valve from a turbo! LOL, while that IS kinda cool, it does worry me slightly because ive never heard another CAI on any car do that. It make the noise at throttle tip in, and in small increments at partial throttle. Just wondering...

I got a cold air intake on mine and it does the same thing. People think I have a turbo! It is funny, I like the sound too :)

VERY easy to fix this problem: port the throttle body. That stupid bump makes the whistle. I still get the sucking sound with small throttle openings, but the whistle is gone. At anything besides WOT, you can't tell I have an intake
