The K&N will only allow more air into the system

Replace the old box and see if it is any better, i imagine it is just a coincidence there are issues buddy

Check your MAF sensor, If it's plugged in or theres anything clogging the intake pipes?

Is it original? Is it the kit that comes with the MAF included or just an OEM replacement type? Or cone type?

Am 99% sure it would not come with a MAS buddy

Is the car ticking when the car is running? is it a fast tick, slow tick, loud, quiet?

If it is like the car is expelling excess air, that is normal

Mine does it (i love the sound)

The ticking could be a sticking hydraulic lifter buddy

If it is like a 1-2 second rush of air when you turn the car off then that is fine buddy

I love it when mine does that

i agree with pete on both topics.

Although the ticking could be your timing chain or the tensioner as well. 50 part for the tensioner

I love it when mine does that
Mine did that last week for the first - and so far only - time. I was rather taken aback by it. It sounded like a turbo waste gate opening!
While it sounded kind of cool, it's a bit worrying when your car makes new noises.

Where does it come from?

Hmmm.. ok mate. If you say so.

As long as it's not bursting from anywhere it's not meant to.
And it did sound way cool!!

Sorry, when I said "If you say so" I actually mean it.
I wouldn't have a clue.
