If you have a can of carb cleaner, you can spray that around the hoses and such. Where ever you think that sound is coming from. The RPM will increase when you spray a leak.

Throttle body cleaner.. no carb cleaner EVER... Carb cleaner removes the coatings (if yours is coated I think most are) on the inside of maf sensors and throttle bodies which can cause its own problems.

i did hte seafoam in the intake and the gas. Instant success. How about remove the air box and adding a filter directly to the intake? Do i have to buy the pipe? Cant i use hte flexible boot that there?

Glad that helped. That'* some great stuff. Kind of smoky though. As for the intake. You don't want to be sucking in hot engine bay air. I blocked mine off. I'll see if I can find a picture. You can install a FWI intake.
