That's what happens when you replace a highly engineered stock airbox with generic off the shelf parts. Car makers put a lot of work into getting the intake to sound just right, which for most cars means almost totally silent. If you change the setup, you're on your own.

My car has a blower, which means I'm stuck with the CAI. I've gotten used to the sound, even though it sounds like the car is taking a breath every time I shift.
