Yes, that's the upperintake manifold, but if there are no vacuum leaks, it's not likely to be causing a "whining" sound. It doesn't have any moving parts that would make a sound like that. The camshafts are nearby, and they are driven by a timing chain that could make a sound like that. The water pump is down under the passenger side of that area and might make a sound like that. You might want to invest in a mechanic's stethoscope to try to pinpoint the sound. It could be a few bucks well spent.

upper intake is just half of the intake manifold delivers air into the engine. This engine has an upper and lower intake manifold.
