hissing noise at idle?
ok so i got my car back from the body shop and they put a CAI on it and there is a loud hissing sound when it idles... is this common or is something not tight enough? just curious because it sounds just fine once it's not at idle

it's the CAI and i checked everything and it was tight so i guess it's just one of those sounds i'll have to get used to

i definately love the sound of it when driving around town
