cold air intake promblem?

hey i just installed a new 63 series K&N aircharger on my 07' ranger and im just wondering if it should be making a noise when i turn my ac on and off ( it kind of sounds like "ba dump")almost like a decompression or air gap. Let me know if this is normal or if something is wrong. it also makes this sound when i put it in park sometimes too. Help me out because i have no idea so i need all the help i can get. Thanks.

ok then i guess its normal. did you do it yourself? and also for the hose that you replace on the crank case attached to the valve cover did you go over top the coil for the ac fo did you go under it. I went above because when i went under the tube kinked up so i didn't think that would work to well.
