Catch can help please...

Hello all I just completed the installation of my Elite catch can, everything went smooth but when i started my car it almost sounds like the catch can is leaking air? I felt around the inlet connection and the exit connection and didn't feel anything.. I also felt around the hoses where the hose clamps secure the new connection and there was no air leak that i could feel....

Is this just how they sound or did i do something wrong??

side note.... the inlet connection could be tighter but i couldn't turn it tight enough to clear the engine cover so i put Teflon tape on (both connection) and backed it off a little its on there on semi tight.

thanks for the help!!!!

This is normal. Read through this thread and you'll understand why (towards the third page I think): http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=280495

Perfectly normal. The can will amplify sounds.
