New noise developed

I recently noticed a noise that my truck makes while under light acceleration. The best way to describe it is a low pitched flute type noise, not really a whistle. It's hard to hear unless you are listening for it on purpose. It happens above 2K RPM but goes away under WOT accel. I know that my drivers side up pipe leaks at the flex joint so I'm thinking that is probably where its coming from. If it were a head gasket, I've heard the noise is loud, more of a higher pitch, and more whistle. Probably would lose coolant as well right?

I hear a high pitch noise similar to what you are talking about but it only happens when i press on the skinny slighty just taking off for an example.. This sound appeared when I installed an airraid intake... Probably the culprit.. If you had head gaskets issue yes you would lose coolant

If you had cac tube leaks you would know it. The truck would be very slow to respond and produce no boost. I am familiar with this noise your describing and it sounds normal with the 6.0 turbo... I hope im right in guessing your sound. Going out on a limb.

Cac boots split/cracked, exhaust flex joint cracked. Both are not uncommon.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.
