other half says K'N 57i to loud

Hi all just fitted 57i kit to my 147 after a bit of fiddeling managed to fit in the front wing didn't fancey all the hassel of removing the battery etc to fit it in place of the old air box , anyway I love the roar off the kit but the other half keeps complaining that its too loud I think it might be a tad to loud esp at full throttle after 5k rpm the dash starts to rattle. I wonder if it is because of were its located? will it get quieter over time ?

Tell her not to rev the baws off it, it won't get any quieter unless it's really dirty.

Start shouting when you hit higher revs, she wont complain about the car making noise then.

Dash vibrating thats Alfa build quality not a induction kit problem lol

As for the volume of the induction noise, just use this solution - its worked for me for years and I swear by it.

The Louder the Engine/Exhaust noise = The Louder you crank up the Radio

hehehehehe
