Default Slight whistling noise appears when accelerating

For about a year now, when I gently press the gas a low-pitch whistling noise is heard from under the hood. I have believed its the throttle body, but I dont know. Has anyone ever had this problem?

The funny thing is I have an AEM CAI ....AND...I've messed with the idle air control valve. My Civic, like many, has a gunked up idle air control unit. I need to get it replaced but I figured I would mess with the screw anyway! I thought I put it back in the original position.

Ever since I removed my exhaust I could actually hear my intake. Sounds nice.
