WHISTLE IN WH2 V8

2003 Holden Statesman • V8 •

What might cause high-pitched whistle in WH2 Statesman V8? Pitch changes with accelerator pressure, even before engine revs change. Seems to be vacuum-related but mechanics say "no"

All engine pulleys checked and/or replaced.
PCV hose and connections checked OK.
Noise sometimes seems releated to whether the aircon is ON or OFF. Could alternator electrical noise get directly into speaker wires, even when audio system is OFF?

Can you hear noise under hood? Use tube to ear to pinpoint. If it goes higher before engine revs that might say not the alternator? But they do/can whistle wine and show up in speakers. But I dont think with radio off.
