High Pitch Squeal

I've found that many people have asked about it, but nobody has gotten an answer. During moderate to hard acceleration there is a very loud squeal coming from my engine compartment - belt was replaced recently and its still there. It seemed to be reduced for about an hour after I got my car back then returned right back to being as loud as ever.

Some people have cited the tensioner or some sort of PVC leak causing the noise, and I just want to see if anyone out there has any clue the source of this noise. Pretty disappointing because this is a great car otherwise.

I am right there with you. I have had the noise for quite some time. Took it to the dealer where it was purchased, looked under hood, drove it, lifted it up and accelerated in park.... couldn't find anything in the engine or exhaust that they could pinpoint to be the source of the squeal. Mine is just like everyone else's, only happens when I accelerate rapidly or get above 2500 RPM slowly. REALLY bugs me and I would LOVE to hear the pur the car would have without it.
