They dont use a dynometer its a digital calc. they test acceleration and get a base then test it again after the mods the better the acceleration the hp is calculated... thats why its off.

Ill bet 300 bucks it makes 10+ whp on a real dyno

Looks like a nice unit. Should be good competition for the Steeda CAI.

Hey, hey if K&N needs some field testing in a tropical island I'd be more than willing to volunteer my car for it!

You know... to see how it handles the heat, salt-air and constant rain.

K&N had a promotion on their intakes when I had a GMC canyon. They were giving them away, a lot of them, to those who wanted them. I put my name in the hat early, but never got selected.
So I made one on my own, and the wife still is mad about the missing dryer hose. It worked great, but a home made one is out of the question this time, and I'll bet K&N would like some real testing and feedback. I can easily document results and workability on a daily basis, with photos and graphs too.

The steeda is cheaper. The steeda heat shield doesnt leave the intake open.
