    hmm.  the best I could describe it is a "puh-puh-puh-puh" whenever I push the gas petal in. Sometimes it's really loud,, other times not so much. There's also times when it doesn't make any noise when I accelerate.  It's mostly when I'm in 1st / 2nd gear, by the time I get to 4th, it's quieter / non-existant.  


    I have no loss of power, and it doesn't accelerate any slower than it did when it was new.

    you could try some additive in the petrol to lubricate upper cylinder,but if their is no loss of power then i would be looking at air intake connections and ancillaries,like the control on air intake for summer /winter thats worked by a valve ,look here first and stick some upper cylinder lubricant in with the petrol.best of british
