Cold start noises after intake installed

Just wanted to share this with others. After I installed an AEM intake I noticed some strange noises when cold starting. I did some digging as it happened every morning when starting my car. Symptoms were as follows:

1) starting car
2) engine would rev to about 2k
3) RPMs would slowly decrease to just under 1k as the engine "did its thing"
4) right around 1200 RPM I would hear this strange noise - like extra machinery or something metalic

Turns out it was the secondary pump running - apparently the stock air flow and filter system has some baffling to suppress this noise.

Took me awhile to figure this out and wanted to share it with the forum in the hopes of saving others diagnostic time.
