Question on noise in clutch

So today I went on a cruise with a bunch of my buddies who own Terminators. I noticed after we ate I started the car back up that when I engaged the clutch I heard a whooshing noise. Like airushing....I never heard before however the previous times I drove it windows were up and radio was one. Today..first chance I got to drive it with windows down. It was 70+ degrees out. Note..car has 457 miles on it now. Clutch as seemed kind of stiff till now. Is this just the way it is? I don't seem to have any issues that I can tell. It shifts...no slippage etc....

 

Perhaps I am just paranoid

I'm sure you are aware of ths clutch issues, that said, if the pedal is on the floor you should hear nothing, as you start to release you will start to hear a hissing noise, this is a normal charateristic of the ceramic clutch. If you can hear the hissing with the clutch pedal fully on the floor you need to see your dealer for the clutch TSB. good luck

I hear nothing with clutch fully engaged....it only happens as you release the clutch. Once it engages it goes away...or once fully engaged. The TSB is for build dates prior to 09/2008. Mine was built 12/2008...with all the upgrades....to the clutch so, I do not think the TSB is the issue. Sounds like it is normal...given the statements.
