What’s the scream from the engine when punching the accelerator, as in if you where racing off the line?

Fan clutch locked up would be my first guess, assuming the 1500's have one and not E-fans

There could be many sources that could create a noise that could be interpreted as a scream.

One of the more common is a loose serpentine belt resulting in slippage. Inspect the condition for cracks and check the tension on the belt.

Other than that, post a video with your scream sound and we might have a better idea.

Mine has a weird whistle in the upper rpm area at times under full throttle, pretty sure someone I raced before thought I had a turbo lol. Love gapping cars that think they are fast with a crew cab truck. Fun times. 3.92’s for the win.
