Default Bearing Squeal

Really need some help on this one guys. It's driving me nuts and I can't figure it out.

2000 GC8
Original Tranny
Exedy OE Clutch Kit
2000 GC8 Flywheel
Pilot Bearing from the Exedy Kit
Rebuilt 2005 EJ205 82k miles
Supertech Pistons
Stock Rods
Stock Crank
King Bearings
Rebuilt TD04
?? WRX Alternator
?? WRX PS Pump
2000 GC8 AC Compressor

I finished the swap earlier this January. Over the first couple months I noticed a light squeal while driving. It sounds like a bearing squeal, but I am not sure. It only occurs when the vehicle is warm. Actuating the clutch pedal does not affect it. It also comes up even when the car is at a stop. I can increase the frequency and the volume of the squeal if i push higher RPM's. I also feel like it gets worse when I hit bumps in the road.

I got out of my car last night when the car was still running and squealing, popped the hood, and couldn't hear anything. Put my ear right next to the TB cover, the PS pump, the AC comp, and the alternator, nothing. I rev'd it with the throttle cable and still nothing. Got back in the car and I heard it lightly, then dissipated.

What could it be?
Faulty Pilot Bearing?
Something in the Tranny?
