Chris,

What you installed is the K&N FIPK (Filter Injection Performance Kit) The
FilterCharger is just a replacement for the air filter using the same
plenum.

I don't hear a whistle on my installation with a 5.8L, just a lot of rushing
air. (maybe your hearing is higher than mine) You seem to have the dual
throttle body so there is no restriction there, it could be a vacuum leak,
or maybe that is just the way it sounds on your Bronc. Is the sound kinda
like a turbo noise or is it more like a whistle a person would make?

Try running it with the FIPK removed a little at a time. If it makes that
noise with every thing removed then it was just being covered up by the
filter box assembly and it was there before you started. Could be an
existing problem before you put the FIPK or that is just the way it sounds.

The Ford Truck Enthusiasts t-shirts are ready! They are
available on the web shopping cart, if you don't have a
credit card, are not comfortable using a secure server,
or cannot use a secure server (some older versions of
AOL) you can print the order form and send it with a check
to the address listed on the form.

http://www.motorhaven.com/

We've tried to keep the price as reasonable as possible
given the small quantity of shirts we ordered from the
print shop. There are a couple of truck related sites
charging about $20 for a t-shirt, we're keeping it to
$12.50 (XX and XXX are slightly more).

As is FTE's usual practice, we'll increase services offered
with increased revenue.

Regards,

Scott,
This is not a new whistle. It is like a whistle a person would make. The
reason I can hear it more with the FIPK, is that the air intake hose is almost
straight. The stock set up is almost an "S" shaped. (tbi back to air box, then
runs forward to the grille) It is definately coming from the tbi, cause I have
run the truck without any hoses (only for a minute) and the whistle is there. I
think this is just one of those annoying things I will have to get used to.
