Default 3.0 sounds like a jet at take orr

Just bought a 98 2wd with a 3.0/5spd. When I get in a start off after as you accelerate or shut rev the engine there is wooshing noise that sounds like a jet taking off, sounds like a huge vacume leak. Goes away with in the first mile or so. Performance seems to improve onces the noise stops though not dramaticlly. Any ideas?

Agreed.
Sounds like your fan is running, mine does it too at startup and once you listen and hear the fan quit running it's like that feeling you get when constipation ends!
