Question Weapon R Question?

I have heard many intakes before and some aren't loud at all but for some reason this intake is so freakin loud that my friends can here my up to 3 miles away and it sounds like a ninja. Does anyone else's sound like this or could I have done something wrong installing it?

I have a 2000 and it doesn't look like that. I have two hoses going from the intake to the engine and one short one going to a t-connecter and then two fatter stock hoses going to the engine. It seems logical but it doesn't seem to be sucking any air in. I even put on a K&N and put a piece of paper up to it and it would't even move the paper.

sounds like whoever (if you im sorry) didnt do a good job installing.. or something. if the intake is not sucking air in, your car would have a hella time even getting up and going, but then again check if there is blockage in the intake. take it off and check it.

What does the sound "sound" like?

Is it a "hissing" sound?

No, it's more of a mechanical sound, like when VTEC kicks in on a Honda, except way louder.
