what were the symptoms of blowing the seal? a honking noise and a white residue on the chin? seriously though, did you get a code or just distinct sounds?

this noise i have is pretty subtle and quiet, yet the car "seems" fine. i really can only hear it with the radio off. i notice it even when barely boosting. i'll shift at 2500 to 3000, let the clutch back out, and a moment or so later i barely hear a brief squeal. maybe i have something entirely different developing? the similarity to my car and stuntwrx's car's year and mileage piqued my curiosity.

before i take it in, i think i'm going to play it safe and reflash to stock and throw my stock airbox back in, just to avoid any warranty hassles. i am avoiding installing my DP for fear of compromising the warranty. :/

Also if you only have a CAI and no tune, says a lot. Use paragraph breaks, by the way.
