Am I just paranoid? Whining evo

This car is loud, ever since I bought it. Anything over 40 whines and the faster you go the louder it gets. Sound like a plane is gonna take off when im doing 80. When I bought the car it made the same noise, then the diff blew. The tcase was also leaking, so mitsu replaced both the diff and tcase under warranty. The stupid mechanic didnt tighten the atf fill bolt, I made it 3k before changing the fluid and making sure it was torqued to spec. the noise hasnt gone away, brought it to a different dealer to look at and they said the cars are normally loud and that I had a bent wheel. Replaced the wheel and still no change. Im at a loss, are they really just that loud? Do i need to find another evo owner to give me a ride and see? Or do you think my diff is gonna blow again?

Oh man, what the heck are you using this car for to cause that much damage?

Evo is loud, but whine is not the noise that is common. More like road noise and interior vibrations are normal.

Bent wheel also has nothing to do with whine. It would make more of whomping sound.

How is your fluid looking in TC and rear diff? Any metal shavings?

Are sure it’s not a hub bearing?

Hub bearings can cause a very loud roar. Maybe the when the wheel was bent, whatever did it caused some damage to the hub bearing.
