    Question Whining in Engine Area

    When I accelerate I hear a whining noise from the front of my 00 TA (M6)
    I dont hear it 4th-6th gear though its the loudest in 1st less in 2nd less in 3rd
    I thought it was my idler pullies and i had it checked and 1 was going bad and it was replaced but i still hear the sound. Higher RPM = Louder Whine

    Could be the alternator going bad. One thing to try is to get a piece of tubing put it to your ear and use it to isolate where the noise is coming from.

    Could be a supercharger...
    Alternator sounds like a probable cause. You may want to check for leaks in the air intake system too.

    Have you put a CAI or Lid or FRA? After i did my FRA and Lid before my Loudmouth i could hear it whistle in high rpms, it could be that?

    power steering pump probably. See if it gets louder when you rev the engine and turn the wheel at the same time. My car makes this sound also... dont know if it means the pump is bad or if they are just noisy

    I dont know what you mean by CAI, Lid, or FRA. I do have a slp loudmouth though.
    It doesnt get louder when i rev and turn the wheel at the same time. The power steering pump is about a month old.

    Lid is an aftermarket airbox that replaces the stock one with the silencers on it{the piece on top of the air filter}...fra is the free ram air mod that opens up the lower assembly under the air filter...cai is just an aftermarket intake like the k&n FIPK, usually has an open element

    oh...as far as the whining, try to locate it at idle. Put a screwdriver to your ear, or whatever might transfer sound the best, and try to pin point it. Sounds liek your power steering though, my truck was doing that and the pump was shot.Does it sqeel when turning?

    its your blower belt totally.
    no seriously what kind of belt did you put on it when you did this alt/ps replacement? if you used the goodyear gatorback they tend to whine alittle. usually when its under load. like accererating but when crusing they mellow out.

    Honestly i dont know. I didnt do the replacements i took it to a shop and was foolish enough to not ask them when i picked it up.
    I believe i do have the fra because when i bought the car i was told that it has ram air but it's not a ws6 though. I guess some TA's came with ram air.
    It's most definatly not the power steering pump its new. It could be the resevuar though? I had to get a new power steering pump maybe the old pump made the resevuar go bad.
    I'm going to have to see if i can icsolate where it's coming from exactly. I cant really hear it at idle though i can just heard the pullys or belts turning loud as hell. Idle my engine area is as louder then my loudmouth and equaly as loud when im driving
