I doubt it is related to the oil cap unless you left off or forgot the rubber oring around the cap, even that would not cause and loud whistle I think.
No, I let the engine cool down before i took off the cap, I took it to my local subaru dealership and they said it was a leak but have been unable to find it so far.
