Any K5 owners notice a loud flapping sound on the airbox/snorkels below 4000rpm? ( Note: only when moving) I Did not have that sound on my 1k.
Thanks.

Yup, it makes a kind of warbling noise from around 3-4K rpm. Above that it seems to go away. Since I'm still breaking in and chugging it down low alot around town I've become used to it.

Yes, at 3700 rpm. I use a gear that keeps me slightly under or over while just cruising. I hate that sound! You will never notice it when quickly accelerating through that range. I installed an M4 exhaust a few weeks ago, it makes so much noise that I don't notice that sound as much now. Stock can is very restrictive. New exhaust makes very noticeable power!
