Now for some reason the intake makes a huge sucking sound from the filter. It probably is the loudest thing on the car right now. You can hear it over the fans when they kick in and the overall engine when it is on.

Would anyone know why/how I can fix this? everyone that sees my car thinks its the fans trying to keep my car from over heating until I prop the hood up and show them the vans are off, and that the noise is my intake

Also at start up after its sitting for quite some time a puff of blueish smoke comes out of the back end. After start up it doesn't show any smoke. What could be causing these problems?

First of all, the loud 'sucking' noise is coming from the cone intake filter. My 5S does the same thing but usually dies off when the car is warmed up. The blue-ish smoke is from you valve guides wearing out; its a common problem for old cars, it just means a lil' oil is getting burned up on start-up.
