    Sound coming from back of intake

    Ive got this sound that comes from the back of the intake area when i hit the throttle abruptly from idle. for example when i pull up on the throttle cable quickly or step on it while idling or very low rpm. But doesnt do it if i use the throttle normally or gradually, just when i make the equivalent of stomping on it.

    It is a whooshing sound or an air sucking sound that seems to come from the back somewhere towards the top of the engine. It really sounds like its pulling in air real fast, but once the rpms catch up it stops. so in other words it is like 1 sec. and it seems like the rpms will drag for a sec and then catch up.

    Has anyone had this or heard it before and can offer some insight, its a gm stock replacement LS1 long block that has about 30K on it. I guess the intake was reused from last engine which had 80K on it.?

    Updated Sound From Intake w/Video

    Ive got this sound that comes from the front of the intake area when i hit the throttle abruptly from idle. for example when i pull up on the throttle cable quickly or step on it while idling or very low rpm. But doesnt do it if i use the throttle normally or gradually, just when i make the equivalent of stomping on it.

    It is a whooshing sound or an air sucking sound that seems to come from the back somewhere towards the top of the engine. It really sounds like its pulling in air real fast, but once the rpms catch up it stops. so in other words it is like 1 sec. and it seems like the rpms will drag for a sec and then catch up.

    Has anyone had this or heard it before and can offer some insight, its a gm stock replacement LS1 long block that has about 30K on it. I guess the intake was reused from last engine which had 80K on it.?

    Here is the video of it: (feel free to turn up your volume) you can hear it best at the 2nd rev and also the last one.

    I don't hear anything unusual - the throttle body will make that sound because you're causing a sudden rush of air - am I missing something?

    very possible it's just from the pressure change that's coming from vacuum being pulled on the brake booster. Sitting in class so I can't watch the video but very good possibility it's what I just mentioned.
