They all do it, you just can't hear it at speed above the other sounds. it's a big engine and it sucks alot of air. It's much louder with a CAI

...passenger side (well thats were it sounds like its coming from) we can hear a air sucking noise...
girlfriend??????

but seriously, is this the noise you're talking about? my car does it too, although it sounds more 'metallic' to me rather than a sucking noise. hard to determine what exactly it is, but now i know.
