Hopefully someone on here can help me figure out a strange noise. Just in the last day or 2, I have noticed a weird sputtering noise that sounds like it is coming from my intake (K&N SRI). It only happpens at high RPMs, well in to VTEC (like 6900 - 7000 range) and continues until I shift. I notice it in all gears, but it doesn't really seem to be affecting performance. Any ideas?

check the clamps on the sri at the throttle body and the filter first to make sure nothing is loose or is impeading the flow of air. also let your car idle and step outside and see if you smell exhaust, an exhaust gasket like where the downpipe meets the header or downpipe meets the cat can start to corrode over time and cause an exhaust leak which can sound like a sputter
