Just ordered mine and can't wait to get it installed. I'm almost past the break in period so might as well celebrate by installing an intake! Thanks David for the fast processing and getting it shipped out.

Installed the intake this morning, biggest pita was the 2nd soft connection, took forever!
Protip: when removing the stock intake, instead of using a screwdriver for the bottom screw (by the turbo) use a small wrench. Much easier!
Question here: when I gun it, the intake makes more of a whoosh sound, with a bit of whistling rather than what I normally hear from such intakes.
I was expecting more of a roary, deep noise, instead I get something that sounds a bit like sticking a vacuum cleaner pipe in a corner.
Is this normal for this intake? My concern is that there could be an air leak. I triple checked and I believe everything is connected solid, should have no leaks but still the sound is not what I have heard on my other cars.
Made a few videos, very hard to hear with the wind, I believe video #3 is where you can hear it best:

Assuming you don't have any air-leaks (you checked), that's pretty normal for any SRI (K&N, InJen). When I gun mine, I also get and can hear what seems to me to be a turbulent airflow buffeting sound in the 3K~4K RPM range at the intake which goes away after that (i.e., "smooths out"). That also seems normal as well. This sound is NOT "turbo surge". I'd also recommend that you reset your ECU by doing the battery ground disconnect for 10 minutes or so. The car needs to adjust to the new setup and your driving with the new SRI installed and this will help facilitate that. Enjoy!

Installed mine the other day, and mine does the exact same. Wasn't quite the sound I was expecting based on what I had read. Not complaining though, I actually kind of like it.
