Whistling while accelerating from cold air intake

I have a 2018 Camaro RS with the V6 option. I purchased and installed a K&N Cold Air Intake. It came out great, but whenever I accelerate between 2-3k rpms I'm getting a whistling/squeaking noise. I expected some feedback, but idk this just sounds irregular. When I get on it though the sound goes away, just happens when I'm slightly accelerating. I've checked all my connections and everything seems tight. Any ideas?

It's not from your cold air intake, it is from your intake manifold. A "more open" air induction just makes it more audible.

No it’s from your CAI. Does the MAF tube had the 2 “wings” inside? These tame turbulent air which causes that squeaking sound as air passes over the throttle blade.
