Loud intake    (Score: 1, Normal) 04-23-2006 12:20

Is anyone able to hear the intake, or I think its the intake, while in their 06 Si. There is another noise I hear when driving besides the regular motor and I believe it may be the intake.
Thanks everyone.

Actually the intake was designed specifically to make that howling sound.

Its kind of like a howling sound. I can hear it faintly at idle(very faintly) and can also hear it when driving, usually luder at higher RPM's. Definatly sounds like the intake. Again, Im not use to driving a sporty car. I use to have a concorde so its probally me juat not being use to such a powerful motor.

Howling sound...did it happen after you "hit a bump" one day, and have your neighbors been posting flyers for thier missing dog? You should probly get a stick and get it out of there, might start getting some odors emmitting from there soon otherwise.

For all those with CAI out there.. make sure it isnt touching the body of the car. I just checked mine yesterday and it was touching and was getting cut through by the car. I moved it and now its fine. Make sure your CAI isnt getting ruined

at first mine was touching...but i noticed when i'd hear it rattle at idle....i shifted the position and places some foam all over where it was hitting and on the piping of the cai itself in the most likely places that could hit anywhere

You are hearing the air intake sound of course. It sounds a bit like an aftermarket intake in my opinion. I love the growl when accelerating above 4K rpm! I can never hear the exhaust though because my intake is so loud?

I know what you're talking about, I believe my car has the same noise. I took it to the dealer and they couldn't replicate the sound. It happens mostly when the car is warmed up. They drove it when it was cold, so that's probably why they didnt hear it.

It's not vtec, because its constant, during highway cruises speeds. It's not the wind off the sunroof, because it's coming from the bottom of the car. It's not a cat because I've ran over a possom, and the noise has been there before I ran that over. It could be the intake cause it does sound like air being sucked it. I wish someone could tell me what it is.

Spider, does your gearbox feel rough after you've popped the shifter out of gear while your car is making the noise?
