After changing timing belt, sounds like I have an aftermarket air intake???

Changed my timing belt yesterday, first one iv'e ever done on a honda. Got it all done and now it sounds like when the engine goes above 2000 RPM's I have a performance air intake. I have the stock air box. It runs good and has plenty of power. I rechecked the ignition timing and it was off. Could I be off a tooth? Or maybe it's the belt breaking in? It's on a 94 prelude H23. I bought a whole timing kit new tensioners and water pump. It's the gates kit. ( no not the performance belt just OEM)

yeah i'm going to pop the valve cover off and see where my cams are set at after I get off work. If one or both of my cams timing are off, is there any way to get it on without taking everything apart again?

yeah you can but its going to be hard with the tensioner in the way. Pull one of the belts off where it is off and have the another person adjust it while you hold the belt also make sure u put a mark on there to be sure it doesn't move again once you try to put it back on... That sound you hear is the new belt sound that is normal for a fresh timing belt, it sounds like a supercharger which is cool lol....

did you leave the top timing cover off? when i put in cam gears i left it off and it gives a quiet whistle sound kinda like a tiny supercharger.

Re: After changing timing belt, sounds like I have an aftermarket air intake???

I think I know what my noise is. Well as far as I know the car was rear ended before I got it. The bumper is a little scratched up and the exhaust was pushed forward and is tweaked. I know this because I bought a new exhaust hanger and can't even hook it up to the muffler. When I changed my timing belt I also changed the driver side engine mount thus raising the motor. My exhaust is also too far to the pasenger side so I think that it's up against that part of the car so hard that it makes the car sound louder. Thats my theory for now, All I need now is the exhaust going from the cat to the muffler to prove it.
