Awesome! Thanks for the pics. That second pic shows a possible perfect place to mount a catch can between the SRI and the battery.

Hey guys, i just got back from a 10 mile drive and this sri makes what sounds like a low level grinding noise during acceleration. I had the same injen on my na veloster and it did not make this noise...i'm assuming this is turbo related, so....is this normal?

You sure its placed all the way in? The only thing you should be hearing is a tornado and air being sucked in... and its loud. Also should hear the turbo spooling...

My stock VT made a sound like that this morning when I used the cruise control to get back up to speed after some really slow traffic. Definitely a little strange.

This is my full CAI I just received yesterday. Although way louder than expected, something just doesnt sound right either. I even had a performance shop check it out, and apparently nothings wrong. So I'm assuming the noises are normal??? From the outside its intimidating as hell though. Land vehicle Vehicle Car Engine Auto part

What did you do with the recirculating cable that was connected to the intake? I don't want mind hanging in the engine bay doing nothing so I haven't disconnected it... a video would be nice ;)

I just did an install of the CAI and I get a really loud intake drone at normal driving rpm's(Prolly till like 2000-2500rpm) is this normal? When I really get on it, it sounds great, but for regular driving its a little annoying. Is anyone else experiencing the same thing?

That's what i'm experiencing, so it seems it's normal since the few that have this intake are hearing the same thing, but i agree that it's annoying.

I know just having a CAI you will be able to hear the motor more than before. But you shouldn't be hearing "Grinding noise" A deep tone, maybe the sucking from the turbo and all. But grinding sounds like a bad thing. Maybe it isn't a grinding sound and more of deep motor tone.

just sounds like air noise on the video I thought, cant hear a grind at all but maybe in person it is more pronounced. you sure it just isnt an intake noise?
