Clicking / Tapping Sound
I just put a K&N filter and rice pipe intake on my SSEi a few days ago, and coming home from work the other night, I noticed a strange clicking / tapping sound coming from the engine bay. I'm not sure if it has been there since i put the intake on, but I am almost positive that it hasn't. It sounds almost like valves clicking on a cold day, fairly quiet but definately audible from inside the cabin. It gets louder is I approach boost, but then is hard to hear becuaes of the whine. This morning on the way to work I didn't hear it until I was about two miles away, so that almost makes me suspect that occurs at higher engine bay temps. Also, the intake is not cold-air yet, heat shield has not been built yet. Any advice as to what it might be or how to find out and fix it? The temp sensor in the filter is from a 97 and I did do kind of a shotty job at splicing the wire together, but I'm going to redo it today.
