The ol\' suck & whistle

Nice title, eh? Just a quick question to the Volant guys out there. Any of you have a high pitched whistle since you installed your Volant? I have been trying to track down the noise and it appears it is the butterfly making the noise. It whistles loud when I gun it and then sometimes steadily around 3-5K. Anybody know how to cram a sock in it?

i've heard my volant make that noise before...but it only happens at higher rpms. I really have to listen for it though.

Now that I think of it...

I think it might be the hose fron the Pcv valve that goes into the side of the Volant that may do it.

I have seen several installed Volants and the pipe that goes into the side is not exactly a clean connection. I'm guessing because the hose has a 1/2" fitting for a 9/16" hole in the Volant. This could cause the "whistling" you hear.

It might be worth checking out.
