Twuck Whistles?

So its been doin this for awhile and id figure I should fix it by winter. Any ideas on what could cause the engine too whistle? It gets louder as I accelerate. But its quiet enough that I have to turn my stereo off to hear it.

Probably the IAC(Idle Air Control). Thats what it was when my engine was doing that. Common problem.

It's easy just 2 bolts right on the side of the throttle body if I remember correctly and a wire and that's it. A new one costs around $35.
