Weezing Sound

Any thoughts on a weezing sound when i accelerate? Weezing is the best word i can think of. Its a high pitched weezing sound that correlates to the pressure of the gas pedal. Its not very loud and its not there all the time. It sounds like it coming from directly underneath the glovebox/automatic shifter.

vacuum leak most likely, while the car is running (but be very careful and have a fire extinguisher around just in case) spray either starter fluid or brake cleaner around the intake, vacuum lines and see if the RPMs change. Don't spay on the exhaust. Also do you have air conditioning? As the air cleaner is above the tranny, you may just be hearing the air going into the air cleaner and/or you may have a few rubber grommets, seals out of wack that are allowing that noise to be picked up in the cab.
