I had Intense bump my idle 100-200 rpm to smooth out the cam/valve train lumpiness. When my car is idling ..you hardly hear anything.

PS..Tom, I don't have whistling either. Did you hook up the PCV or cap the port on the tb?

My mystery ticking noise is now gone. Supercharger needle bearings repacked and greased like a pig. Quite as can be now. Well except for the massive inlet air noise when my foot is in it. Which is pretty much all the time.

I don't have a whistling from the TB....vac leak?
That'* what I thought too, but I just had it reinstalled when I swapped my Gen V blower. Some guys on ClubGP reported the same issue awhile back after installing the N*.

I'm still trying to figure it out.

Haha, burn. I honestly can't really tell when I'm in the car. The whine really drowns things out and under part throttle I just hear the vavletrain/headers. I'd be curious to hear my car in a flyby (me not driving ).
