Start the car when cold, open the hood and check the front of your engine where the drive belt is. One of your pulley or accessory bearings, and or tensioner is probably making the noise.

a whistleing sound sounds more like something with your intake alot of aftermarket intakes are more noisey than factory, maybe a hose isnt on properly or some vaccum line has a crack something to that effect. It could be a pulley but all the ones ive seen go bad make a high pitch whinning noise and it doesnt go away beacuse the pulley is always spinning with the motor is running.
