I just had a dinan intake put in yesterday, and it is making a funny noise. When i lightly accelerate in the lower rpm's it makes a high pitched squeling noise. What could this be? It is not very loud, but i just want to know if this is normal because it is new or summin'

is it like a whistling noise? or a friction noise? either way it is not normal.

friction noise = belt may be slipping

whistling noise = check for poor seal betwen the CAI and air meter, between CAI and filter, and make sure they properly oiled the cone filter.
