real numbers not rumors

Had my SVT with JRSC/BBK dynoed today. I decided to get 3 runs and each with different type of intake since there's always a debate into what makes more power on a roots blower. 1st run with SVT airbox. 2nd run with a no airbox (shortram) and third run was with my home made cold air intake.
My only mods are all 3 motor mounts,springs,kyb dampers. Stock everything else and I'm running the Ford Racing BBK tune. Chime in and post your opinions but numbers don't lie.Also- I recorded the runs but my battery died. I will post them in a bit.

Damn that is one nice flat torque curve. You said you got a roots type not centrifugal?

JRSC is roots type. Centrifugal can't make torque that flat.

yes I do.. Even the person doing the dyno was surprised about the power made with the cold air.

Everyone needs to understand how UNRELIABLE this test is , My guess is the hood was open , there was a fan in front of the car , take these test and close the hood , have the heat from the engine under the hood , the 210 deg air coming through the raid , the radient heat from the road and the results from this test would change BIG TIME

wow !!!! well considering that you're a "focusfanatic" veteran Tom i would
expect you to stay with the topic. The dyno was to "PROVE WHICH IS THE BEST INDUCTION SYSTEM FOR THE JRSC SVT" and nothing more since i have the time and money, why not ? Rest assure that if i wanted a faster car i would not have gone with a focus, the 42K i saved in Iraq would easily let me do that.
By the way what is wrong with putting a fan in front of the car for the dyno ? Is moving air not a factor while driving? and why do you so often and desperately need to jump in and discredit people and if they're not getting tuned by you and feeding your wallet which i've seen you do quite a bit? Not everyone wants a "tom's tune & turbo.
