It could be your throttle body. There was a member a while back that had the very same 'whistle' he described as you did to the T

He ended up installing a throttle body from another 3800 motor and it went away.

Yes, I do remember reading that a few months back. Wasn't it because it didn't line up right or something like that?

Welcome our newest 3 Motor Club member!

Well than I would say it has to be one of your accessories your transferring over from all 3 motors. Your throttle body probably.

How much is a new TB? I don't really feel like paying for another repair after my side mirror...

It has to be the TB, because I have the new APN UIM, nothing wrong there!
