Maybe this should be in the Forced Induction section ? lol

Seriously though - it seems blokes with a cam and pod get this induction noise...this is nothing new - most pods make that sucking kinda noise anyway - teamed with a cam to accommodate, I'm sure it's more audible - c'mon lads - make an mp3 :)

Sounds strange for a cam to making those kind of noises.

Someone didnt accidentally let the tensioner off too much did they, and the chain is now waaaay too tight.

The only time I've ever heard a "supercharger" type whine after a cam change is because of this.

Might sound cool, but pretty detrimental to the engine.

I find with mine that most of the noise comes from the extra belt and the idler/tensioner pulleys.

i know the sound everyone is talking about but mine is making a blow off sound when changing from 1st to 2nd with the shift kit on, only if i take my foot on the go go pedal just before it shifts. I was thinking in could b a leak in the intake manifold.

Any ideas????????????????/
