A difficult to explain noise.. Know it's something not sure what..
 
Ok to start.

I'll be totally honest, I generally drive my LGT like I stole it. I've launched it a few times but generally just drive like a dickhead.

It's an '05 stage 2+ (bnr 16g @ 19.5PSI, tmic, AEM intake, ebcs, comp clutch & lw flywheel) w/ 137k

That being said.. The noise in question sounds like a combination of:
whirling
whining (not like the normal gear whine)
fluttery ish

It happens in any gear, or at say 70mph on the highway no gear.. clutch disengaged or engaged.

I know it's not going to be a cheap fix, and i'll probably do an overhaul on it.

What are your thoughts/idea's?

Your best bet is to get it on a lift and listen for the noise when the wheels rotate in gear. I have the same issue in my car. It is the bearings in your Center Dif/Transfer Case back housing. There is 4 bearings total in the back housing. all you have to do is drop the exhaust, driveshaft and pop the rear housing off and you should be able to do it all yourself. There are a couple DIYs on the interwebs about it. Or you can wait for when I do my write-up after I am done swapping my bearings out :) in total the bearings are around 220ish from the dealership

Any permanent issues that can come up in delaying repairs?

Bad bearing can lead to mis-alignment and case damage to the center dif and transmission

Do you know the part numbers for this or is it something the dealer can pull up.

Take your VIN to the dealer, they will get you the right stuff.

center diff bearings.

If you turn full lock at slow speeds and you get clunking your center diff is probably shot as well.
