Sorry guys I promise you 99 percent of "gains" see with these intakes are simply dyno runs that are not done properly or measured properly because the car did not fully adapt to WOT pulls or other conditions having nothing to do with the intake itself. Really you need to do 3-4 pulls before and 3 pulls after install to see. Back to back pulls and such tell you nothing

I'm no EAS fanboy by any means, and I don't know about other guys, but the way you described is exactly how EAS dynoed my car. They do multiple runs to heat soak the car, and let the car adapt.

Also worth noting, Run 002 (which was done right after run 001) dynoed at 341whp, so assuming that run 003 would have yielded 345ish there is still a huge difference between that and run 009-012
What were the results? Interested to hear.
