    Re: KPE Cadillac CTS 3.6 Air Intake Group Buy

    The other night we had a terrible down power/thunderstorm here in Michigan. Roads were flooded all over the place. I think the deepest water we drove through was about 0.5-1ft deep!!!

    Anyways, I wanted to be sure that I the CAI wasn't sucking in water, so when I got home, I opened up the top cover to the CAI, and checked the filter and the surrounding area. NOTHING WAS WET Which is terrific!

    Not only that, but it was practically ice cold in the area surrounding the filter (as was the intake tube itself). The engine compartment was quite warm, so I was VERY pleased with the CAI ability to suck in cold air.

    The engine tone above 3500 rpm at full load really reminds me of the northstar V8 i used to have in my STS. I really LOVE this new intake!

    I wouldn't have been worried - it's not a real CAI.... it barely reaches down anywhere that water would actually be ingested.

    Re: KPE Cadillac CTS 3.6 Air Intake Group Buy

    Any idea why I get the whining noise now when the gas pedal is pressed with this AIR INTAKE Mod?

    Is there a way to fix it? Any help is appreciated very much.

    Re: KPE Cadillac CTS 3.6 Air Intake Group Buy

    Bob/KPE,

    I am starting to experience the same issue as pldia. The intake is making a whistling noise (faint, but definitely very audible, even with the windows up). I notice it the most between 2 and 3 thousand RPM at moderate throttle load. I'm not certain if its the MAF that's making the noise (unlikely as the old intake did not make that noise). I'm guessing its either the filter or some other components. PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THIS ASAP and let us know if there is any sort of fix. Initially when it was 90+ degrees out, and I was driving the vehicle harder, it was less audible. But now that its cooled down and the air has gotten a little bit more dense, its become a lot more audible!

    Guys,

    the whistle is normal. It's air moving over your throttle body butterfly. Remember it's just a circle of metal with a sharp edge. It creates a whistle and that is normal. Your OEM intake baffles a LOT of the sound so you never hear it. There isn't anything to "fix". You'd have to get a different throttle body to do so.

    My D3 intake does the same thing, as did my STS when I had a ghetto intake on it. A lot of cars will make this sound with a short intake like ours. It's becaue the throttle body is now a straight shot to the outside world with no resonator or box in between.

    Hopefully, KPE can comes up with something to reduce the noise. I mod my 2005 escalate with the K & G a few years back and it is all quiet.

    Thanks
