The above steps came from the K&N provided installation instructions. This mod was quite an easy install. I did notice a slight whistle/hissing sound after the install coming from the filter area. This noise is normal, but check your connections just to make sure everything is snug.

I think the whistle is from your TBS?

Did you notice any benefits after the install? More responsive? Better mileage? Just curious because this is probably the first upgrade I will be performing on my Magnum.

Thanks!

I just put in a mopar cai, and I have a whistle too... Is that really normal? To me it sounds like there might be air entering somewhere it shouldn't. Can't pinpoint it though. Sometimes it occurs softly at 2000rpms when the engine is under load like going up a hill, and other times when at full rev it sounds REAL LOUD, like a backyard style firecracker taking off kind of whistle. :pepper:

I also hear a knock/click from the intake area that gets faster underthrottle, almost like a rhythmic engine knock/ping or something flapping open and closed. Perhaps that was there before, and the new intake made it more audible.

Any thoughts?

The whistle is normal for most CAI's.....they are more open than the stock unit filter boxes so you hear them a little more.

Mine does the same thing. Being new to the club and just buying my Magnum RT about 2 months ago, it already had a K&N CAI installed, along with Magnaflow's. Makes the hissing sound when I'm on the gas and it's really loud when I stomp on it but quiets down when the rpm's get really high. Kind of intemidating to others when they hear it rev. People think there's a super charger or a turbo under there. I like it...:thumbs_u:

Even the slight knocking/clicking/flap noise I hear as well.

Nice write up. Only step you forgot was to detail your engine compartment when you got you old air intake off.:rock:

I installed a Volant CAI and part of the setup was a new tube from the front to the air box. The stock tube/box is a pretty hefty item as you can see. For you K&N guys it might be an idea to remove the extra weight as it is so aerodynamic.
