    Default whoosh/possible rattle when flooring

    Don't know whether this is anything to worry about or not as the car's pretty much done this since I got it in October.

    When flooring the accelerator hard and foot to the floor I sometimes get a whoosh/rattling noise. Only seems to do it if I floor the car and doesn't do it all the time. If I accelerate quite hard but not like I've got a lead foot it doesn't seem to do it (although of course it takes longer to get to speed). Took my mechanic for a spin the other week and he couldn't seem to hear the noise I was talking about. Car does have the airbox mod so was maybe wondering if that sucking in more air quicker into the tb could be the cause ? Not really sure tbh andit doesn't affect the acceleration or overall power.
    Wonder if anyone else has had a similar problem ?
    Thanks, Steve

    Have you got the trumpet to put back in the airbox to try it and see if it makes a difference ? Mine wasn't in the airbox when I got the car so I don't know any different lol. If you're ever in sunny Donny let me know and we can compare noises lol
