People forget the pressure is not the metric the engine cares about, it's all about air flow.

Also you probably picked up a decent amount of power, you just can't compare the runs from few months ago because the air conditions have changed.

You should of dynoed before and after on same day to verify gains.
Hey what's up.

In my case, the change in exhaust did nothing to change the boost as I have dyno'd with the stock exhaust with the blower. Same boost as compared when I dyno'd the day after I had the MRF catless mid-pipe and Akra slip installed. The boost didn't change much but I did pick up quite a bit of power overall, particularly low in the rev range where the S65 needed it most.

Temp/humidity was different, but it was factored in for the STD RWHP results.
