The reason I ask is that the prefilter feels and sounds like that cheap-swooshie pants, wind breaker material. The type of material that would make that sound. I have a hunch it could just be the air getting sucked through that. It's definitely down in the filter area, an area I can't see directly into, all the hoses and seals up at the top of the intake/throttle body are tight and sealed.

Jus figured I'd suggest that in case you did have the prefilter and yours doesn't make that sound. I could rule that out. If not then I'm gonna have to remove splash guard and take a good look at that end.
Sorry for the late response. Yes I have a prefilter and have had several since I first got my cai. I do not have the sound you have so I do not think it is that. I would check the couple again
