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?

Lol, it just doesn't sound right to me, like the engine is really stuggling in those RPMs. Otherwise the engine does sound pretty sweet.

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!
