Weird “warble Sound

If I go WOT, I get this weird warble sound… almost a fast drum roll. If I’m doing 15 MPH, it won’t happen if I’m in a right hand turn. It’s minimal but you can hear it if I’m going straight, and it’s very noticeable if I’m turning left. It sounds like it’s low and on the left side… under the hood directly under my clutch area. Yeah… I know it’s weird but surely someday out there has experienced this or can apply some logic here? Thanks.

Sounds like a wheel bearing. The pitch changes when you turn the wheel? It gets louder the faster you go? No noise when it is stopped?

No, but thanks for the try. No pitch change. Wheel bearings are new. Only does it initially under WOT for maybe five seconds. Mildly off going straight, more pronounced of you’re in a left sweeper and nothing in a right sweeper.
