my ef futura (with cam work) makes a 'sucking sound' when i rev hard...

not sure where its coming from but from inside the cabin it feels like its coming from the left side of the engine bay... any ideas?

Have you got a pod filter or extractors?

My EF makes that noise and has both of those mods. Although now with the new cam, you can't hear anything over the exhaust.

Intake Mods - K&N Panel Filter, AU3 XR8 Snorkel

- thats why its doing it..

K&N etc filters always make the engin louder when you accelerate.

You just have induction noise which is the sign of a well breathing engine.... something that people generally strive to achieve, not silence ;-)
