Default Odd noise from engine compartment

I have a 2006 ram with the 5.7 motor. I installed a K&N cold air intake, and when driving at a steady speed there is a loud clunk that sounds as if a door is slamming when the motor drops down in RPM> Does anyone out there know of this issue?

Sounds like something is a bit loose in the drivetrain and is clunking when it shifts into overdrive.

I suspect it's either a u-joint or the driveshaft intermediate carrier bearing.

So then the K&N CAI isn't secured properly.

Remember, a CAI tends to amplify underhood noises that you wont' hear with the stock system on the truck.

I'd spend some time under the hood checking things to make sure they are secure.
