Ya, they did "something" that knocked it out from fully seated... who knows but it clearly wasn't seated when that repair was completed, it was noticeably louder upon picking it up... I took a look and it wasn't super obvious, there just happened to be a gap from the bottom of the air box to the top of the resonator tube... I just kind of pushed everything back together and the intake noise subsided.

Tigeo ^^^Disconnecting the battery should not be necessary; the ECU will figure this out v. quickly..its not a big difference for it to deal with.

Yeah it was the hole under the air box, and I disconnected the batteries negative post from the car to clean the MAF.

Only dropped one insert into infinity below and found out the negative cable post is PITA to reinstall so I basically had to re-tap it with the original bolt. Other than that....two thumbs up for sure!

Yes, you're sucking in too much hot engine air with the lid off... you need one of those open intakes with the surround that seals against the hood to keep only cool from the front coming in... When I had my DCT repaired they didn't seat the airbox against the lower resonator tube right... It sounded good but I knew it was sucking in hot air that way too so I had to reseat it.
