Default More */C whine

My '02 SSEi whine is suddenly much more noticable. It had 9800mi. when I bought it 2 mo. ago, and now has 15k mi. and is completely stock. Is this something I should be concerned about? What should I be looking for? Is it just because the previous owner never stuck his foot in it?
sounds like zzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZzzzzz

Yikes. Be careful with that one. You don't want to suck foreign debris into that spendy blower!

When I first picked up my new Bonne from the dealer when it was brand new, the intake tube was not tightened and was loose. Good thing I checked it.

Was probably slower with it off. The IAT would be sending false info, and the air would be turbulent.

Does turbulence really even matter on a supercharged car? I just wonder because on an N/A car I could see it being an issue as its pulled into the intake manifold. But on a supercharged application, the blower will just spin the air around anyway, so I don't get how it could be an issue. A guy I know put a vortex on his GTP and I just laughed because when you think about it, the air is all going the same place through one port, so whether its smooth or not I wouldn't think would matter.
