Is there an aftermarket air box or a modification that would quieten it down a bit? I think that even if I tried to sell it, that noise would put anyone off!

Don't try to change the airbox. Nothing good will come from that. Make sure the 2 rubber boots are securely connected to the throttle bodies.

Don't run the engine below 3k. If you think you must then get a boosterplug. That will make it more pleasant down to 2k.

I didn't know there was a name for that sound. I thought it was normal.
