Re: induction kit

Thats just the air being sucked in-perfectly normal mate dont worry if its a atmospheric dumpvalve not a recirc theyre only as loud as the boost your producing at the time it goes off, so at full boost will be loud low boost virtually non existent-std recirc valves are silent.

If its a new dumpvalve youve fitted will get slightly louder through more use as it loosens up if ya get me.
Best sealant used to date- Fourstar ultimate paint protection *Now discontinued* Rebranded as sonus SFX4 paint sealant-Try some ya wont be dissapointed.
