Default crank/rod knock?

today i just installed my injen short ram (sounds awesome) but i noticed a new sound when the car is idling it sounds like something is knocking and im afraid. this didnt happen until i installed the intake but that doesnt seem like it would have an effect on it. maybe something is loose what do you guys think?

check the bolts holding the intake by the battery, and do you have a strut bar? check for rubbing agianst the strut bar, its not the injectors lol, their not that loud.

np man just look around for the filter, piping hitting something, have someone sit in the car with their foot on the brake while its in gear and watch it vibrate. thatll be the fastest way.
