Have you checked the bundle of wires in the trunk (driver's side) ? Can cause many odd electrical problems due to wires broken and shorted in the bundle

Check the wire bundle in the trunk lid on the driver side

Many have found broken wires there, also check the engine and battery grounding points, make sure they are clean and secure

Just had the 3 lights

Different codes (one was for mechanically stuck throttle) but I took off the boot and cleaned the crap out of the throttle body, and my car has been running great with no codes or lights since then

You have the subwoofer enclosure there, the top does come off (not very easily--prone to damage if not done correctly), but there is no storage in there

4 cylinder or 6 cylinder?

No vanos on 4 cylinder engines. Have you located the sound by using a tube or piece of hose and listening to the engine in various places?
