Default whinning noise

Well guys I didnt know where to post this so I am putting it up here. When I accelerate my car makes a whinning noise. I know that WRX's make this noise but none are as loud as mine. Several friends of mine has told me that it seems awkward so i was wondering what you guys think. If anyone has or had this problem and fixed it please let me know. thanks

Steve

Where is it coming from? our tranny's are known to whine somewhat but usually when accelerating in the lower gears. Mine whines really loud accelerating in first gear.

it does seem like the tranny because it only makes taht noise when the accelerating. but i could be wrong. yes it happens all the time regardless of cold/heat. its also at lower speeds but in every gear right before boost hits at around 2000-3000rpms. It doesnt hinder performance but it does get annyoing and embarassing at times. people always ask what that sound is and i only reply by saying "i dont know".

Maybe it's a passenger that is in awe of the acceleration? If so, then remove the passenger.

OK, so that was no good. If it is engine RPM related, is it the turbo spooling up?

Or, is it speed related. That will pin down engine or trans.
