all I can say is that it's not a problem.

do a search on the topic it has been discussed many times.


Short explaination is that you took out your silencer/resonater box when you put that in.....the noise has always been there you just couldn't here it. It is the sound of the butterfly in your throttle rotor opening up to certain angles and the wind ripping through there creating a whistle.....I am guessing you get this about about 3200 rpms?

when i first got my intake it made that whistle only at a certain throttle position. For some reason when I ran some sea foam through the intake it stopped. Sea foam is sweet stuff but it smokes like hell. It helped to improve my throttle response.
