[b]Alright im wondering if ya can help me ive just purchased a vectra its a box standard 1.8 16v now i was thinkin of installing a cone for a induction kit i took one of me nova to try it on i connected it all up and when i rev the engine there is a funny ticking noise coming from the cone, so i thought it might not be compatible because i think it is not a universal cone so i went out and bought a unervisal one connected it up and its doing the same thing can ya help.

unless im very much mistaken thats the noise of the internals of the head moving (valves i'd assume,not sure if u'd be able to hear the tappets thru the induction piping)

Is it really loud?? the tapping that is

is there a feed to ur airbox,cud u put ur ear to it to see if u can hear the noise there,im not sure but i dont think its possible for a mere induciton kit to MAKE this noise,maybe its making a noise thats already there more audible,as theres nothing between ur valves and ur ear other than a guaze filter,wheras with the airbox its surrounded by plastic to keep the noise in. Try removing the filter altogether,and see if the noise comes out of the open end of the airpipe

If you take the pipe from the inlet off, so it's just the plenum chamber with the hole in, you might be able to hear the noise a bit better (it also sounds fricking amazing).
There is a throttle position sensor and the butterfly valve in the tb that clicks when they shut. Doesn't sound like anything to worry about anyway.
