I noticed this as well when the fans come on that is. Didn't think it was a big deal but I did notice it

Noticed the same here, and I'm using a Wagner FMIC. Like Nioh, I don't think it's a big deal either.

Not a lot of reviews on the VRSF intercooler. What do you think?

i have a theory, the larger intercooler has more open space internally causing the sound from the fan to echo louder than the stock one which is quite puny. sort of like a speakerphone
