more noticable at slow speeds. i don't think you will be able to hear the "hiss" at higher speeds because of the engine noise. the hissing is normal for open filter systems.

Most CAI systems have a whistle or whine to them. Some more than others. Maybe clean your filter and see if the whistle improves since you did not start hearing it until recently.

mine hisses but does not whistle. driving low speeds i can hear the intake hiss but again does not whistle, if there is nothing wrong with the intake and the truck runs fine then i say everything is ok, just clean your filter, a recharge kit only cost 10 dollars. just please don't go around being a little ricer thinking you have turbo.
