|sailor||8 ponies at WOT isn't a large percentage improvement, but as a real WHP gain it's significant. (would be a larger number if figured at the engine)|

|thelongone13||The ol butt dyno couldn't tell. Then again, I already have the snorkel deleted anyway, so I doubt it matters at this point.|

Still draws air from the outside as opposed to under the hood.
Combined effect from reduced restriction in two places, removing the snorkel & replacing the air filter with a less restrictive one.
Warmer air reduces power, less dense so lower oxygen & less fuel to match.

it seems to me that it should only make a difference when moving, not sitting still like on a dyno.
i wonder if hp gain shown by the dyno is nothing more than heat soaked air being taken in and the computer dumping more fuel (ie. rich condition) creating the gains.

no. i covered the half inch gap in the tubing with some felt--the thing things thread is about lol
not going to be doing the snorkel delete. don't really see the point in that honestly.
covering the intake tube gap has noticeably changed the way my throttle responds though

|FFhb13||You did the snorkel delete? I would have thought from your other posts, you were too worried about the warranty... but it's a hidden thing so doubt you have to worry...I was skeptical too about removing a silly little air flute, but the next day my DCT shifted smoother and I felt a bit better throttle response|

i just want to say that initially i thought this thread was a joke and everyone was experiencing placebo effects.
i think that was a little premature. i'm a very, very skeptical person by nature on everything and i'm slow to say that something is good or beneficial
i honestly think that this little fix has provided a noticeable positive effect upon throttle response in the 0 to 40mph range from a complete stop. i've experienced a noticeable decrease in lag and lunging as well.
bizarre but true. stayboogy approved!

Measured the temps on the way home. As long as you are consistently moving then it's within a few degrees of ambient. As soon as you slow down, doing under 30 the temps start rising. My intake temp (AFTER it had cooled down), rose to 126 f (52c) whilst in traffic on the highway, with stop/start. Ambient temp was about 86f.
To me, that quite a lot of heat soak going on there, and bear in mind I have the area taped up, and the snorkel remove (but not the flap).
EDIT: On a separate note, I was also logging the engine temp, and transmission temp (method 1) and they were identical. I will see if there is another transmission temp calculation in there as that did not seem right to me.
