Recently went to Phase 2 with EC parts and tune. The problem is that my V2 intake whistles in the upper RPM range. Now this doesn't necessarily bother me, but my girlfriend is annoyed by it. Is anyone else having the same issue? Is this the norm and inherent to the design of the cold-air intake? How to the other EC intakes sound? Should I go to V1 or V4 for example? Thanks for your input guys.

It’s the norm for a V2. And the V2 isn’t a cold air intake. Take a look at it. Where do you think it’s pulling air from? And how hot do you think that air is? The original stock intake is a cold air intake because it is actually pulling colder air from the outside into the engine.

A V1 or V4 will pull air from the outside. The V4 makes less noise than the V2 but more than the V1.
