Hi guys

Not long after i got it now im noticing hissing from where gearbox is, but only sounds in the second gear. The hissing could be described as the one caused by the airfilter on a turbo charged car.

Personally i dont mind it much as long as it isn't gonna grow into a problem...can anyone guess what it might be?

Thanks!

sorry brother, did u mean airbox might be loose?

Sometimes i think i hear it in the 4th gear too, although not as loud and sometimes not at all - not even in the second gear...so i was wondering...i dont wanna hear its the gearbox Airbox is much cheaper problem

debaffled doesn't mean bad. sorry i should have explained further...

there is like a shrub next to the airbox (i dont know location of it on your car) that many owners cut off to get more sound...
