2005 VUE Red Line
Default sounds like cai?

I just installed a cai on our sky rl. It doesn't sound as good as the one on my vue 05. Is this because of the turbo? I hear it sucking in air and a turbo whine and then almost a click sound when I let up. Is this normal?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Yes, your intake on your Sky RL will not sound the same as your vue's. The intake on a naturally asperated motor allows you to hear the growl as each cylinder sucks in air, where in a turbo motor you will not since it is baffled by the turbo. You will hear more turbo spool as you are on the gas and the bypass when you let off. Perfectly normal.

Thanks Eco-Mod.

The sound doesn't work for my wife, so I'll be selling the cai.
If anyone wants it, I'll sell it for 175. shipped. If not, you'll see it on ebay soon.

cai's on turbo cars will always have a different sound. If anything it will improve the turbo's function as well as boost the turbo spooling sound. No intake will sound just like the same brand on a different car.
