    Ya it is a POS filter... but thats not the prb.. already tried taking it off... im thinking its actually the skunk 2 intake manifold when it opens to let air in... at a certain throttle it makes a noise any idea how to fix it?? And i didnt have the skunk 2 intake mani on my old engine...

    are we supposed to be listening to the whistling sound from you intake, if not i dont hear a damn thing.. tighten up the whole intake.. if it was anything with the intake manifold the RPMs would most likely be surging

    i'd remove the intake and open the butterfly with your finger to whatever throttle angle the noise occurs at, or open it all the way
    look for any drastic "edge" that would make the noise when air flows over it at that throttle angle

    i'd bet its right where the throttle body bolts to the IM

    bend what back?
    lol

    i'm thinking more along the lines of grinding the edges... you have to look and see if you can identify a trouble area

    does the car idle ok?
    did you replace the TB gasket when you switched to the skunk2 IM?

    9 yes... 15 not really...

    do you have a stethescope? or do you know how to use an extension or broom handle as such?

    you could have someone hold the idle at the noise maker level and then try and hear where its coming from...

    A broom will open to much and the sound will go away... ive alrdy played around a bit with it... And its harder to get it to do it when the car is parked... when driving its alot easier to produce the sound...
