Because my dyno numbers are real, not inflated.

different dyno, different day, weather conditions. I want to see real numbers like greg, but I will believe steeda's numbers until proven wrong.

I want to dyno the steeda myself, and probably will, it just depends on how many runs and mods I want to do at once. If I do newmission's mod and add the steeda then do I want to do separate dyno runs? It starts to add up the more combinations that I do.

stock
newmission's mod with stock box
steeda based on their instructions
steeda+newmission's mod
steeda+newmission's mod+custom heat shield
fswerks exhaust

6 dyno runs at least(probably 12 or 18 to get averages) at $40 a run that is a lot of money just to spend to try and see what is the best.

I would love to see those numbers :)

If you do them you should also have them dyno with the hood open and hood closed.. see if there is a real number difference

I might do that with some of the intake ones, see if newmission's mod is a big improvement.

I need to start putting my money where my mouth is and get some of this done, probably will try and get a part number list for the stuff to do newmission's mod by monday, and order steeda and fswerks stuff next week. I just tend to over research stuff.
probably will also get an obd II reader and get MAF readings.

No, I do not....and not promoting them either, I just don't want to see anyone buy something that does not perform as advertised and I will say this: if someone buys the Steeda RAI, dyno's it and gets close to the same number as Steeda I will publically say I was wrong.....

I have seen Steeda's numbers/advertised gains on other vehicles and they have been inflated, and if it were another company I would be just as skeptical as I am about Steeda's gains...how they would coax 20 ft/tq out of a stock 2.0L 4 cyl engine is beyond me. At least my dyno results were very close to what Injen's results were.
