: Engine whine at 2000rpm

07-21-11, 06:35 PM
I think my car has always done this and I'm just obsessing about it, but I hear a distinct whine at just over 2000rpm with light throttle in all gears. It happens even in neutral. I think this is just how the engine sounds and has always sounded, but I'm not sure anymore. The whine is similar to the diff whine from the 04 V or the normal supercharger whine (but this occurs with no boost).

Anyone else notice this? If not, any ideas on what it could be?

could be altenator whine, supercharger whine or diff whine. impossible to tell without hearing it really.

I get SC whine at low rpm. Sounds great. Try to get us a sound vid as M5eater said.

All I hear when my car is running is high performance V8 rumble. If you're hearing something else, take the car to your dealership, they'll find the culprit.

I hear pure v8 blliss! plus the ocassional scream from my SC saying, "GIVE ME MORE!!!" :D

I can hear that whine too. Very faint but you can hear the supercharger almost as if its waiting to be unleashed. Almost like its humming along.

My whine sounds deeper even at idle.. Ever since I put the 2.4 pulley on.. It just does not sound right to me but I didn't do anything else but headers and the pulley swap...

It's very likely the supercharger whine. My 06 C6 with the maggie supercharger did the same thing & my 2012 V has the same whine that starts over about 2000 rpm. Sounds normal.
