I think it's the open element design then because the Volant is open only to the fenderwell.drmstlr66 said:I haven't noticed that on mine, it could be that something isn't sealed tight, and there is air getting in. Or it could just be the intake filter itself. I had a K&N on my other truck and it did the same thing at times.
Nope, just the AEM intake. Anyone with the K&N intake system have this problem? I really think it's due to the open element filter.HavockWK said:Do you have the TB spacer? If you do, it is supposed to whistle according to the manufacturer.

Try this: Pucker your lips and suck in with great force! :lol: This is the same sort of dynamics involved with a conical air filter. It is a normal feature and also has been associated the sound of an opening waste gate on a turbo-charged motor.
Enjoy your AEM intake and report back to us regarding it's features and perfomance over the stock air box setup. I have slightly modded my stock air box,but haven't decided which after-market setup to get in light of being subjected to Calif. visual smog inspections. I want the max air flow but not the need to switch it out for the stock box just to pass smog!
Hey Lonerider,Lonerider said:Hi Again m95roadster,
Ok, I see what you mean. Can you desribe the sound or pitch of the whistling? Is it the sound of an actual metal body whistle blown lightly or the metallic vibration type of metel to metal? Is it speed or rpm sensitive regardless of what gear you are in? Try the maual shift mode to hold the rpm and varies speeds constant.
Have you notice the sound since day one or after one of your mods? Have you test driven a new Titan to see if other trucks make that same sound?
I have installed a Banks Exhaust and running boards on the same day a while ago and have 'noticed' a whistle or rattle right at about 1600rpm to about 1900 rpm. My first guess is an exhaust gasket leak,but it also could be a loose washer in the running boards somewhere as this is also the rpm range of exhaust drone(ie. vibration)!
Any thoughts or observations on your part?
