Yes everything seems to be on tight. This noise happens when it is a very hot day or if the car is used more than normal. Its a pretty loud noise or howl sound. Thank you for responding to my question and if you have any more thoughts I would really appreciate them. Thanks

p.S. It does seem like the noise is coming from the air filter

By any chance is the engine running hot? Honestly, the only thing I can think is something on the air inlet is cut or ripped and when it gets hot, it is sucking air through the cut. Or, something is releasing pressure from the cooling system. Check for those things and let me know if you find anything.
