Humming noise from around air filter.

Not had the car long, had the engine running and was tokina mooch under the bonnet.

Could hear a dinstinct humming from around the air filter area, (has a hks induction at the mo), is this the norm?

If it wasnt the air filter it was the 'gold block thing with pipes coming out of it' next to the filter. - (technical description, what is that item btw...)

Cheers.
Paul.
