its just the nature of the beast...mine does the same thing and has for years. Its just the intake sucking in air. You hear it more now becasue the intake resonator is off and its a straight shot to the TB. Plus its an open element intake. And yes...the K&N is a short ram intake

Even the one on my v-6 makes that wondeful noise. Alot like a vaccuum cleaner until the idle drops. BUT it does sound better at higher load and rpm ranges.

Yep. Vacuum cleaner on start up idle but after it's warmed up and the idle drops, it sounds like a gas guzzling V8 when you punch it when making passes.
