V2 high pitched squeel driving me NUTS!

Between 2k and 3k rpm my V2 makes this high pitched squeeling noise. Sounds like brake squeel. It only does this when you tap the throttle to slowly resume speed. (which is like all the time when traveling with a pack of cars!) Does anyone/everyone elses do this or do I have to remove the whole thing to see if it goes away with the stock airbox.

I've heard what you describe also, and it seems to happen around the same rpm range to me as well, but only lasts briefly. I think it's the sound you hear before it reaches that critical resonance of the sound waves maybe .

Finally, someone else is experiencing this as well. This is very annoying, but I'm glad it's the V2 and not something else.

you know, if you're ever unsatisfied, you could always give it to me. . yeah, but i think Ivtec is right about the resonance.

My Injen does it too, right at 2500 rpm. Very annoying, makes my new car sound like it's been around the block, I wish I could get rid of it, but it is just a CAI thing.

Thank you everyone. Saves me the trouble of messing around with it. I started thinking all sorts of badness, like slipping belts, broken/squeeky Butterfly actuator, etc. I'll leave it be and let it be the only hint it's been tweeked.

My G35 makes the same noise except at a different rev range. The AV6 does this all too often. Getting on my nerves too. IMO, it is the lack of a venturi ring that creates the whistling noise. Kinda like if you were to blow into a straw with the other end blocked off. Does anyone think adding a venturi ring will fix this noise issue?
I am thinking of adding a venturi ring just to experiment. If anyone knows of a reason why I shouldln't, I would appreciate if you let me know so I waste my time.

man, if your fiance is forbidding you from modifying your G35 with your money, you're going to have some serious issues when she's your wife. Good luck, bro

Yeah... funny as it sounds, she rather that I get a better car than get a cheap one and spend extra money on. I agreed because as soon as the GTR is out, I will jump on it without a second thought. She agreed.

I've got the same issue. I'll agree it can get a bit annoying, easy way to fix it as soon as I hear it stomp on the gas Heck it keeps the gas companies happy with me at least. And even at that the car drives much better over 3K rpm, at least the I feel like I'm moving somewhere then.

I've never noticed it with my Injen CAI. I'll keep an ear out for it and see if it's there.

retrain the computer? didn't you guys have to remove the battery to remove the stock airbox? I removed mine so the the retrain computer was a given for me. I also ended up removing half the front bumper to reach all the screws properly.
Maybe I just did it the long way?

like the manual said, have to be very careful about the first 600 miles for a new car. So, since i reset the ecu, do i need to drive very carefully for some hundreds miles? although, i mashed the pedal a couple of times. Or just let the ecu adjust itself anyway like the other threads said.

for v6 couple, i think you need to pull the fuse #7(backup/ reinstall) to reset ecu. not just the bettery.

Pull the fuse?
Disconnecting the battery would have the same effect unless the fuse also shorted a circuit signaling the ECU to reset.
I know something was reset because my car got horrible gas mileage for the first 2 tanks of gas after I installed the intake. Things seem to be settling in now because because the gas mileage seems to be getting better. The same happened on my other cars whenever I disconnected the battery. It is like as if the ECU is slowly learning the engines optimum running parameters and adjusting itself to it.
