Removed intake resonator, now I have a small whine Answered

I removed the intake resonator on my car, now I have a small whine to my engine. I know the resonator takes away noises and stuff, but others have done this and got a low hum, not a whine. I don't like my car sounding like a Ford power steering pump. Why is this?

Why, and why not just put it back?

.  On the Mercedes-Benz 1923 Supercharged Prince that you are driving, the resonator produces a sound that masks the sound of the power steering pump. So you probably are hearing the pump with the resonator missing.

Is it possible you opened up a small hole in the airbox when you removed the resonator, a leak could cause a whine.
