Lol, it's all good I decided to create the dyno thread to try and consolidate some graphs, but I don't think it's much easier to read.

The best numbers I've gotten were from the K&N, Snorkel delete, and ram-ish mod at around 70. That was the first round at the dyno. My assumption was that it was the filter. After going back to re-test in multiple configurations-that is when I found out that there had to be a combination in order to see the good numbers. All subsequent runs have been in higher temperatures, so I am topping out a bit earlier.

If I still have access to the dyno then I will document some more later in the year once temps cool down. Any more at theae temps is pretty much worthless to me.

Sorry, a bit off topic...

With the K&N drop in, I no longer have the hesitation and it is just a smooth take off and with very minimal noise coming from the intake, less than with the stock filter. It feels/sounds like the car is breathing easier now.
The OEM filter is horrible for flow. I feel really bad for those individuals that are still runnung them on 87 octane in the hot temps with the ac running

Has anyone kept the "box" with the K&N filter ? If yes, how does the K&N filter fit in ? Do you have any photos ?

You mean the factory air box and the K&N? If so, here is mine covered by an Outerwears pre-filter

Thank you TiStick . So you decided to "pierce" the "front" of the air box (yes, I was meaning the air box). Nice !
