Installed Cobb and AFE DCI - car now makes a whooshing sound, normal?

I have an 09 e92 335i and installed my Cobb and an AFE DCI yesterday and now the car makes whooshing noises, I assume it's just the turbos but wanted to be sure the AFE was installed correctly - it's the first engine part I've ever installed - thoughts?

Also, for those who have an AFE DCI, do you hear a noticeable difference in the sound of the engine, because to me, it really sounds just like stock?

Thanks...Super

The "whoosh" sound is the DCI's, has nothing to do with the Cobb tune. Enjoy!
