    Default Air Intake noise when revving

    Hi I have a Vectra 1.8 sri
    57 plate 41,000 miles
    when I hit the gas there is a noise like air coming in .
    I have tried to find where the noise comes from but cant quite pin it down. It only lasts a split second when you rev the engine.Checked all the air pipes everything seems fine.
    Any ideas

    Air coming in where?
    Can you hear this when sat in the drivers seat with the windows up, or stood at the front of the car with the bonnet up and someone revs the engine?
    Is the noise present all the time; cold, warm, and hot engine?

    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : SRi Nav

    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 130k

    Default

    I have the very same on my VVT 1.8 SRi 2006.

    Sit in the drivers seat and lightly / quickly depress the go pedal just a tad and lift off quickly, then you get the hiss just before the revs go up for a brief second or so.

    Checked hoses but no splits. I can only think its meant to do it or I have missed something.

    The car drives perfectly mind you.
