i think i know what you mean

if you do it in park i think the hissing is just building up pressure in either the tranny or torque convert(im not sure if the car is using the torque converter in park though)

If it were a vaccum leak it would be it's loudest at idle. When you rev, vaccum drops so a vaccum leak is not likely the problem.

I would start by removing the drive belsts and starting to see if it is not your alternator, PS, or compressor & idler pulley. I've seen cracked timing covers on vehicles cause noises similar to the described sound, so check that also.

I have a hissing noise on mine because I have an aftermarket short ram intake. I only hear it when I suddenly floor it. It is from the engine suddenly loosing it's vaccum and sucking the air through the throttle body.
