    Rack Tie-Down Straps

    I use soft ties, the same ones you use for dirt bike handlebars, looped around the rack tubing. Then you don't have to worry if the tie down hook is too large or small to fit the rack tubing or location. That and it is less harsh on the powder coating if the hook has worn through the rubber...

    I have the Mantec raised air intake on my LR Discovery and it has the same noise, and it is located at the roofline. I think most will do this, I am not sure on the mushroom/pre-filter style ones though. That is if that is the reason why you would get one with the intake raised higher.
