There enlies the key to their dyno graphs (see the bold in your quote).....

It's a bit slight of hand, and a bit cheeky, but no intake is giving to give you that kind of power. Mighty Car Mods mythbusted intakes and filters. They were able to make power with a custom intake, but only in the range of about 4 hp....and I won't spoil what they did to get it. But I'll reiterate what everyone's been saying, cold air intakes do nothing for power. 15hp is a pipe dream. Your money would be better spent on a tune.

I just put in a K&N drop in filter part number E-2993. Keeping the air box lid on. You can tell a difference right away. I'm really happy with it.

The only way to get to the bottom of this debate is to test with stock box, stock box with filter, stock box with tune, stock box with filter and tune. Then intakes like the RS with and without tune. Compare graphs.


Who's up for it?

There was a thread on focaljet where they put all the intakes on the dyno. Some made great power.

What they do is put big fans blowing towards the intake which you will not see. Agree waste of money.

The lower box also deletes the silencer tube.

Even with a huge TB an intake will still really only make a difference with the throttle wide open and anything less the restriction is always the throttle plate.

I've had both k&n and injen. Out of those two I would reccomend the k&n. On ebay they have the AF dynamic intake kit which is the exact same thing as k&n but a fraction of the price. Hope this helps. Intake wont do much till you get other supporting mods and then get tuned.

Should improve throttle response as well, but would need a tune to show any real gains.
