My 2003 lightning has a high pitch whistling noise(sounds like a tea kettle) coming from behind the supercharger a little to the right. It only does it idling or when im at a steady speed but when I accelerate it stops. What could this be?

pcv elbow may have a vacuum leak causing this. common issue with these motors.

It is on the passenger side valve cover. There should be a sticker with a diagram under the hood.

It was the elbow thanks but when I took the hose off the intake I noticed just a little oil, was the elbow causing that or is it something else

That is normal due to wear in the pcv valve just replace the valve

It sounds like a boost or vacuum leak
