So I'm getting a funky air noise when I drive...just started out of nowhere...sounds like extra air getting pulled in...best way to describe it is that it sounds like an 18 wheeler going through gears...any ideas?

Does this happen when you are sitting still, when you are in gear and underway, or both? You might just be hearing the fan, it can make a lot of noise and at low revs can sound like what you described. The secondary air system is the other thing commonly associated with air noises, I tend to think of it as more like the sound of a vacuum cleaner.
