Thanks, But I dont hear this on my stock filter, or my buddies K&N. I tried it, heard it, opened it up, removed it, replaced it, tried again, same sound. Put my friends K&N on, and it sounded normal. I then put my stock back on and I dont hear anything. The filter in the package is the labeled with a PN that is what Af3 shows for a 11. At this point, I would really like to return this since my wife bought it from you guys. I spoke to a lady there a couple days ago and havent hear back... She was going to call afe and see if they would allowe her to return it since I test fitted it twice.

Thanks Tom, I appreciate the support. Im 99.999% positive my lid was on correctly. I did it twice and had a friend who did his with me. Considering the K&N one didnt make this odd noise, Im pretty sure I did it correctly. Im OCD about things being done right and I made sure it all lined up.

However, I would like to come see you for some wheel spacers! And perhaps some new painted reflectors. I bought clear ones and they fogged up.
