KN 3.6 intake question
hey everyone,I installed a KN intake on my 3.6 . Sounds excellent exactly what I was hoping for noise wise. My question though...anything over 5k rpm I have a rattle,sounds if the intake tube was vibrating against something at a higher rpm. Anyone else have this issue? I'm going to go back and any metal on metal contact I'm going to put a piece of rubber and then bike pad foam around the heat shield where the filter goes. I just wanted to know if that's normal. It sounds like a valve tapping actually. If I can't get that rattle/drone noise fixed I will be going back to stock system BC I won't be able to deal with that noise.
Thanks any info/help would be greatly appreciated.

If things don't work out I'll buy it for a 100 bucks.
Of course you'll have to deliver it and install it too.

That is my final offer. Thank you. :cool:
