Default Whistle Noise

Hi again everyone. I seem to have a problem. Since the weather is warming up I been driving around with the windows down and now I can hear a whirling noise coming from the engine bay. The noise seems to be coming from the timing cover area. The noise doesn't seem to be there at idle but as soon as you rev it up even a little you can hear it. The sound is like a very airy whistle not at all like a pulley would make. Is this normal? Could it be the timing belt?

Sounds like a vacuum leak. Idles and runs fine?

What year?
I have had a similar issue. I had to change the upper engine intake manifold gasket. 03 turbos are know for this problem.
