I've always had a whistling noise since I picked my Forester in February.
I've changed the rear diff fluid, will do the front this weekend, hoping it isn't that.
It only starts whistling while under load, not while in neutral or coasting or light acceleration under 3.5-4k. The intake is secured, too.
I can't really tell where mine is coming from either. I'm normally good at pinpointing noise, too, but damn, I'm not going to open the door on a street, stick my head under, and step on the gas. :P
