Noisy

Mine came with a plastic disposable unit. I replaced it with a K&N filter with a washable sock over it. Now its kinda noisy. Actually, it's really noisy. Are the Napa ones noisy too?

The Bendix rep told me to switch to 3030 long strokes on the rear. I would put 30 long strokes on the tag while you're at it. You should be able to replace all 4 for what they want for 1 3028.
