New 1LE! / Intake Noise with K&N Normal?

I just got my 1LE on 7/3. It's my second car ever and my first car that has any decent power to it ('89 Caprice w/305 is the other). Maybe I'm just paranoid about this sound, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

I pulled the dual mode exhaust fuse and added a K&N 63 series intake. I'm noticing an odd noise if I just blip the throttle in neutral. It sounds like it could be normal...maybe just the intake creating a large vacuum that I couldn't hear with stock filter on. The K&N made the exhaust louder, so I'm guessing that it made this noise louder and now I can hear it.

Does anybody else have an intake that will make a sound that you couldn't hear before you added it? Is it normal?

It's sound like its your new intake, when you push the gas it's sounds like a vacuum right, if so that is normal most all aftermarket intakes do this, if u open your hood and have someone press the gas and stand next to the intake you will hear it, I like the sound lol hopes this helps you out

That's what I thought it might be but I couldn't be sure. Nobody here to hit the gas for me and I've never had a car with an intake. Thanks for confirming this is normal.

That's exactly how it sounds.

By the way, what parts are grease-able on these (joints, differential, etc)? The dealer said he wasn't sure, but thought they were all sealed.
