    Induction noise? What air filter have you got? Stick a paper one in if you have one and see if the noise reduces?

    its stock filter in the box,its what i could best describe it as,car has apparently had a revo remap,but with standard intake and exhaust.

    yeah thats one of the answers ive read but not read it as a definate answer,so whats it doing to make this noise now and again?
