Ok well first off there probley is a thread about this but i cant find it so srry for the report. B

I just got done installing my new AEM Cold air intake and i hear a loud hissing sound near the filter. My question is, is this just from the air flow or could they be a loose clamp? or bad filter?

what about a resonance sound at around 5k? Only way I can describe it is a trumpeting sound. I have rubber all around the hole that the intake goes into, it was rubbing a bit, but it still makes that awful sound. Is that just the sound of the engine?

I just put mine on today and that growl when I mash the gas is just amazing. Like a jungle predator!
The first thing that came to mind was..... it sounds like it wants to eat something. :m_rambo:

The weather was nice here today and a lot of folks had their car windows down. So it was fun to see all the heads turn when I got on it.

I just hope the filter is tough enough to take it. I keep envisioning the filter disintegrating and getting sucked up the pipe. Akkkk!
