I am looking at buying one of these and have read about the "whine" or whistle sound it makes. I did a search and there appears to be a work around to fix this. I was wondering if anyone has video of the throttle body whine/whistle?

Thanks

I notice a very small whistle noise, but barely noticeable once my s/c whine kicks in lol...I heard/read about the whistle alot before I bought my TB. Think it may be a hit and miss thing. I think its so faint, that when I hear it, my gf in the psngr seat can not...so one of those things lol.

I read in another thread that the spacers did not really do anything to help, so I was not planning on getting one. The work around that I have read deals with using a small dremmel to smooth the edges of the throttle body.

I wanted to see if I could "hear" the whine because I am not the best with hand tools and may either live with the sound or not get at all.

Its not a constant, from the start of the engine until you kill it noise...its only when a certain % of throttle is applied...other than that I never hear it...
