It does get higher than that fairly quickly at a full stop, but lowers again fairly quickly after I get moving. I'm sure the effect is greater than that of the stock intake by a fairly big margin (especially at 100 degree temps), but unfortunately I never used the Torque app while I had the stock intake.
When I am going along steady its fine. But in traffic you can feel the loss in power. When its above 100 degrees, it takes a while until it feels normal again, especially after sitting in traffic for a while.
