Intake Installed

Just finished installing K&N Typhoon Intake, took me an hour and a half to get it done, looks cool and good quality.
Every thing seems Ok, no rev bounce, no CEL .
Toke it for a spin felt an improvement in throttle response feels great and sounds great a bit loud especially when vtec kicks in ... LOVE it!

Do you find that it makes a weird noise at a little bit past half throttle? Tough to describe but at first, it sounds like pinging

I think it sounds like the throttle amplified with an echo due to a bigger aluminum piping then it turns to pinging then the best part the roaring when the kicks in ..
