After doing the R kelly mod using spa tubing, I am getting a high pitched electric motor sound everytime I push down the brake petal after I start the car. It dissapears once I get get above 15 mph, but it comes back when I shut off the car for a while and start it again. Could the very stiff spa tubing be pushing against something that is causing this noise to appear? Thanks for help in advance.

Re: Electric motor noise after R Kelly style intake (o2k)

Did you go near or under the cover that sits next to the airbox underneath it there is a vacum valve check to make sure it is all pluged up or not broken

Yeah I went near the cover. I actually took it off so I can work with the airbox and tube a little better. I took a video with my cell phone to give you an idea of what it sounds like.

Did your kit come with one of these?



Sorry, I couldn't resist.

The vacuum boost pump is mounted in that area and it is on a floating rubber mount. If you do something odd to the area, the rubber mount becomes ineffective and things hget noisy. See silver thing.
