A ping and a whirl, and no bag of chips; the sequel

I posted on the W210 E55 section with no response. Perhaps, I'll do better in this section. I recently had my 00 E55 tuned up: replaced spark plugs, air filters, and fuel filter. Under hard acceleration, I hear what I may consider a pinging sound. As strange as this sounds, I believe I may hear the sound of whirling air along with the pinging. I am new to MB, and I am not familiar with the mechanics of this vehicle. Is this sound(s) normal? Or, do I have an issue to address? BTW, the use 91 octane here in CA. Any input would be appreciated.
