pop your hood...and manually give it throttle at the TB...listen for where the whine is coming from.

Yep, narrow down what is making the noise and we may be able to point you in the right direction.

It s common for the pass side header to crack from the ac drip.

it's one of those i'd fix sooner then later kinda things...if you catch it early enough you can have an exhaust shop weld up the crack...if it's too big you'll either have to replace the manifold, or go ahead and buy headers
