    I thought the test at the track conducted by SHOnUp4 and discussed earlier in this thread was more meaningful than any other comparisons I have seen.

    And when I said unbiased I meant someone other than m design or livernois doing the test...I believe numbers... No numbers... I don't believe it. It's just how I am, nothing against either you or m design. If it can't be proven with facts it didn't happen.

    Yeah here it is... In my opinion stock still wins, money spent on something else looks better to me. The difference from 12.42-12.44 is almost nothing

    Well that depends on if you have money on the race. And he runs a 12.43. And you ran a 12.44. As opposed to a 12.42.

    In that case yes, but I would have used my cai money on downpipes, so that is just another comparison that's gonna upset somebody else.. Lol what I am saying is that the cai isn't worth the money for the "gains" expected

    Nobody is saying the stock box is not adequate if you do not have exhaust mods done as well. We do state just that often.

    Oh I agree with you there. The only way I see an intake really making gains. Is if someone would do one that feeds each turbo separately.

    Fresh air from the factory inlet.

    Fresh air from the lower grille opening where flexible tubing is routed to.

    Fresh air from 3 of the slits on the driver's side hood vent.

    All feed into both turbos, separately.

    Been running strong since it's install.

    That can see gains since that big 180 degree bend is gone. Nice work.

    Lol. Really ^ removing the obvious 180 degree bend will gain more then anything else.
    That's basic flow characteristics.
