Cold Air Inductions CAI Installed

Hey guys,

I just got my Cold Air Inductions CAI, black coated, installed tonight. Took it out for a run and it is great !! You can notice the slight power increase and you can notice a deeper tone to the exhaust note. I also saw an average increase of 4 miles to the gallon. This was worth every penny !!

I just have a question to those who have this same intake system. When I shut off the engine, there is a weird noise. It sounds like something just let go of a lot of pressure. Anybody experience this ? Look at the pictures below...

Yea. I was going to get to that this week. Any recommendations on what products to use to clean this up ? I used to just clean it with a wet rag but I'm wondering if there is anything better.
