Default Intake noise

New guy here. I have a 2003 pt non turbo. I've been told if I would install a metal intake manifold I could get rid of or greatly improve the intake noise that drives me crazy. Will a metal turbo intake fit? Great site, you all are really into this stuff!

unless you have a cai, there should be no intake noise. at least there is none on the 2 pt's i own. i would look into something else before changing to a metal intake.

Short answer, NO. Both the metal and plastic intake tubes make the same amount of "noise" which is actually incoming rushing air from the air filter to the throttle body. You most likely have what we call a short ram intake. That's why the OEM intake is so combersome and consists of a couple of different boxes. It quiets down the incoming air noise.

The best thing you can do is put back the OEM filter box. Many owners take it off because they want more air and they like the "noise" that you hate. Put in a post in the "Want To Buy" section that your looking to buy the stock air box from someone that took their's off. Not sure what you should offer for it.

One good thing about getting older: noise doesn't seem as bothersome--unless it's a "thonk", "screech", or a "phhtfff".

And on a more serious note, my 2003 PT Limited doesn't seem to make the noise you're referring to.

Maybe somebody put one of those fake turbo noise things on it.

My answer was based on the fact the the OEM intake makes no noise but ALL the K&N, Volant and Air Raid (all with plastic intake) and all the short ram like mine (with the chrome short tube) make a heck of an intake air rush noise when you stomp on the throttle. Lots of people (including my wife) hate that sound.
