My unexpert opinion. You can't be positive i thought i'd throw something out there that no one considered. Also i've definetly hurd some similiar sounding on a 1999 sunfire and it was the muffler.

Maybe the muffler was faulty, and somethng else was causign the whistling. Only thing I can think of is for example on my car there are little rubber hangers that if worn out, can creak quite loud if the exhaust pipe wigles for some reason.
Speaking of which I gota replace those.
EDIT: I havent "hurd" a muffler sound like that before.

Since no opinion can be wrong, and everyone here has given their opinon, then all these things are wrong with his car...

I listened to the sound and read the first 2 pages of bullshit and vw's was the only to make scence, but as for my experiance with those "sounds" if you listen hard enough there is more then just 1 comming from the engine. I resently moved out to Alberta from niagara falls but first had to fix the squeels under the hood of the car, Powersteering pump, tension pully, altinator and the serp belt. after all 4 were done and only 80 bux later (btw thats canadian too so think how cheap the job can be, but then again the car is a ricer) it was sounding back to normal (besides the rumble of the muffler cause of the giant whole, did sound like a Ram though)
