Do you mean the filter sounds loose as in loose fit when WOT? As if something is loose? Please explain? I'm interested in getting this filter as well. How's the seat-dyno feel also?
I think that the sound can be described as a flutter. I am quite anal about things, so I opened it up again and checked the fitment but it is snug in there with no gaps. Some people have experienced a rattle which I do not have. The throttle response seems better. I am not able to detect any power gain. The ecu will also have to adapt.
