This is a good observation. And it is true with any intake because when you are cruising, there is only a small amount of air moving through the intake and TB. When you mash the go pedal, at first there is a lack of air for a second causing that throaty sound then as the air speed through the intake increases the sound moves from the throaty sound to a sound of rapid air movement. It's all resonance and harmonics which is why when you remove the "resonator" from the airbox you get that throaty sound.
HAVE: '09 SES MTX W/ FSWerks CAI, FSW 4-1 header, Crower Stg 1, 1.5" FRPP drop, Massive Toe arms, EBC slotted rotors + green pads.
WANTS: FSW Stealth exhaust, Tune, (possibly) Turbo
