Whistling sound / slightly rough idle / new owner

I just purchased a 1990 964 5 speed w/ 48,000 miles. Everything is fantastic and I'm enjoying the car tremendously. However, today I took the car to 6000 RPM a number of times in quick succession then cooled down and left the car. Several hours later I took the car onto the freeway and noticed several things: 1) a whistling sound coming from the left rear at 55mph and beyond that was especially noticeable under acceleration; 2) at rest the car's idle was a little rough and felt like there was more movement from the ear end than I'd previously noticed; 3) at slow speeds the brakes are whining a little when taking tight turns; 4)when the clutch pedal is released it seems lazy with a dead spot at the top before it engages - although shifting and so forth is normal.
The whistling may be a vacuum leak but I don't know these engines yet and a cursory look provided no obviously detached hoses.
Any ideas or comments are greatly appreciated.

By any chance do you have an aftermarket "cone" air filter in place of your factory airbox? I have a similar whistling sound from the rear of my car and after a lot of unwarranted concern, it turned out to be the result of swapping my factory box for a cone filter.
