I am not convinced that the dyn085's dyno is really accurate, but I take it for what it is. But, I'd say you better not expect much from the K&N drop in only, though.
dyn085 himself said that the first run on the stock was showing 240 TQ and 144 HP. Then, using the K&N filter he got 155 HP and 143 TQ and this when a stock car is doing usually 138-141 HP and 130-133 TQ (if manual) or a little less HP if automatic.
I am a "noob" in this matter, but I did a lot of readings since he posted his numbers and I didn't find anything on the net to sustain a gain of more than 13 HP and 11 TQ over stock only using K&N filter. Most of the people talk about 2 HP (if any). K&N itself should change the numbers of its Air Intake kit (+9 HP and +10 TQ), because why should anyone buy a 280 $ kit when a 50 $ filter do more ? So, I would take his numbers with a grain of salt, unless someone else with the same K&N filter comes out with the same numbers (IMHO). I do think that with the newmission ram air mod, these numbers will change though. We'll see in what direction when he'll dyno his car again.
P.S. Just to be clear, I am skeptic about his dyno numbers, not himself !
