Probably the throttle body, mine just makes a loud sucking noise.
Did you notice much difference from the manifold that you replaced?
What was the other manifold?

Re: Whistle at idle??

Could be leaking gasget somewhere?? Did you use silicon on the bottom valleys and not cork looking gasgets..TFS recomend silicon so inlet pulls down correctly..
Check around throttle body / egr gagsets...Is pvc valve in corectly??
Are all vacuum lines connected on inlet ??
There is slight more induction noise, thats due to better breathing...
