    I’m about 99% sure this is normal but wanted to double check.

    Installed a TRD intake on an 18 TRDORP a couple weekends ago, went great sounds awesome. Yesterday I switched the stock paper filter for an AFE Pro Dry and am noticing a slight “whistle” at lower RPMs (basically right when I accelerate.

    I’m pretty confident it’s normal, I did plug the hole in the side and used silicone for the bottom opening.

    Thanks!

    Check that everything is tight. I don’t get a whistle with mine.

    I’ll go double check the lid as I just had it off too. Are you using the oem paper filter or a reusable one? I don’t remember hearing it with the paper one

    I am using the OEM paper for now, the lid is a pain in the butt sometimes to snap on. Overall I really like the set up, I put a borla cat back on also, the combo sounds great.

    I’m going to put the paper one back in, I’m thinking it’s more likely it’s the AFE filter now flowing better. Ya I found it easier to loosen a clamp on the filter top side and the throttle body side to get it off and on easier haha

    Update.... I added some silicone around the bottom again just to see if that helps but also noticed the little filter checker wasn’t pushed all the way down... that might have been the cause?

    I have the same setup as you (w/AFE Pro Dry) and mine doesn't whistle.

    Just ordered the TRD Intake. It does not come with a TRD high flow filter?
