Whining sound after letting off the gas:

I don't know if this is old news to some of you, but I've noticed that when I hit the gas for a WOT blast, sometimes I hear a whining noise after I back off on the throttle completely, which lasts up to 2 seconds. yesterday was the first time that I reved the engine up to about 4,000 RPM while in park (not something I usually do) in order to get someone's attention who was waiting for me on the other side of a parking lot, and after stabbing the pedal and letting off, I heard that whining sound again while the engine RPM came back down to idle.

Does anyone experience the same thing w/their Marauder? And can anyone tell me what that is, or if it's something to worry about. if it is, then i want to get it fixed now before I perform anymore mods to my MM since my warantee is still in effect w/what I've done to the car so far according to the service manager I've spoken to.

Whining after WOT

That is the alternator clutch, nothing to worry about.
Our alternators cut-out at high RPM surges to avoid damage.

I knew about the alternator clutch and how it works, but I didn't realize that it made noise like that. it does sound like it's coming from under the hood, so that must be what it is. Thanks a lot!!! I was beginning to worry about it.

I have that same whine as well when I get off the gas right after a WOT run, and it's nice to know that it's just the alternator clutch!
