how is a filter going to cause that... was that the tech or the idiots at the service counter? 10 to 1 the service counter telling you that because they had a new tech look at it who had no clue in the first place and was looking for something to blame the problem on.
Did a standard filter get put it to see if the problem went away?
a stock turbo is not as sensitive to something like an airfilter like a NA car is.

They said the filter was making the sound and when they put the stock filter on it went away. It's still there just not as loud because there is no place for the sound to go.

so its a fluttering noise being masked by a filter and the actual problem was never fixed? just the sound was masked?

i call shenanigans. the filter isn't doing that. they just either don't know what it is or don't wanna fix it. keep the stock filter in and take it somewhere else.
