Also make sure the cowl cover is properly seated and sealed against the windshield. (cowl cover: black piece across the bottom of the windshield along the edge of the hood)
One last thing I can tell you. Sounds that you hear inside your car may sound like they are right in front of you. It is possible that it is not where you think it is! I use a stethoscope (yes, like doctors use) with a long metal tube on the end. This helps me locate the sound more specifically. If you are positive it is the vent, nevermind on that.
Just keep in mind that if you do any of these tests, BE CAREFUL!!!! Especially at the speeds you are talking about!! It is easy to get caught up in trying to test for the problem and forget you are driving a 2,000 lb piece of metal at 70 mph. The sound doesn't mean much after you get wrapped around a tree!!!!! I have had some close calls myself doing this. (at least they were customer cars!!!
One last note. I had a piece of plastic make its way into the blower for the fan under the passenger dash. This made a horrible humming sound but only when the fan was on. As I turned the fan on higher, the louder the sound would get. Just a thought?

You could also ride on the hood of the car to check for noises up front, but the wind shear can be tricky to hear noises over.
