I agree with the two posts above me though which is why i am still sitting on my stock intake. I'm struggling still with with dropping $2-300 on an intake that may or may not benefit me with more gains than pure sound awesomeness. I have the FS Werks race exhaust and it is loud and menacing which I was looking for and may give me a few horses? I always considered the intake the more performance oriented mod as opposed to the sound exhaust provides personally. Good to have a board where this kind of debate is possible I suppose
at least wait for real world results from the intake(s) at least a few people have committed to an exhaust and intake, and i will be just havnt ordered yet.

A big reason for the exhaust being so loud and that little sucker pulling in so much air. My Mustang is 12.5:1 and it is insane.

Do silencers have any adverse effect on flow/power? I've really never understood the purpose of them.

You ever hear the sound of a Carter 625 4bbl atop a Shelby medium riser on a 302? If it had a silencer, you wouldn't.

All it does is keep you from hearing the in-rush of air by having baffles and ported chambers(Helmholtz resonators) in the flow path.

Remove silencer, and silence is removed. Now, if a tree falls in the forest...
