Why is speed (being fast) the only criteria you are using to measure an improvement in the car?
If the car "feels" better for whatever reason, is that not the ultimate goal of any modification? We drive these cars because of the way they make us feel - enhancing this is what any modification strives for.
There are any number of mods that do nothing for speed, yet enhance the enjoyment for the driver - it's often these intangible things that "science" can't capture in a graph or simulation.
my $ 0.02 worth anyway.
