Ive Got a 02 Ranger 4.0 v6 4x4 with a k&n black tube intake, and everytime i turn the ignition on i hear something like a flapper close its more of a hollow sound and its just kinda weird ive never heard anything thing like this. i was wonderign if this is normal or what. anyone heard of something like this. It dosent matter is the ac is on or not thought maybe its something to do with vac

It sounds like your describing the sound the aftermarket intake makes. All intake systems that use a smooth tube instead of the rubber flex stuff will be louder than stock and make weird noises

Lol I have cranked t-bars and rear shackles. Drives real good still and does awesome off road but I have to be careful not to flex the rear too much or the tires grab the fenders. I need to body lift it

Ya that's a better choice. I was planning on a lift of some sorts and I needed big tires for ground clearance cause I wheel a lot
