If you want accurate engine dyno data as produced by car makers, then you must pay for it. Being technically ignorant and in denial is not going to change reality. You're free to believe whatever makes you happy even if it's untrue.

As I said, I can try to help you learn but I can't force you to understand.

Try to take your own advice buddy. Because with out credentials or data to back up your theories you have posted so far, i might as well shoot my self if i cont to listen to anything you say.




Thanks.

You can believe whatever makes you happy. That however doesn't make your beliefs true as numerous folks found out on May 22nd when the world did not end.

Hating the messenger does not change reality. I can help those who want technical knowledge but I can't help those who are in denial - no one can.

No you didnt explain how and why you have first hand experience dyno testing air filters.

And if you have first hand experience dyno testing air filters, then you would have access to data.

BTW, you missed a couple pieces of trade offs that auto manufacturers need to make:

- noise
- emissions

It's sometimes true that you can pick up some power if you are willing to sacrifice one or more of those parameters (along with the ones you mentioned, engine longevity and gas mileage). It's definitely not an easy science, especially not like most tuners make it out to be. But, a small trade off in additional wear is worth it, at least to me, to pick up some pretty substantial power gains. (without primary cats, in my track configuration for my car, I pick up 35rwhp.)

This surely makes my muffler, my secondary cats, my resonators, etc wear more... probably puts more stress on my bearings, rings, valve guides, timing chain, etc etc etc. That said, is trading a small amount of their useful life for additional power worth it? when the life of most engine components is 200k miles, I'm willing to trade some of that for increased performance.

How much of that? Really depends. An air filter that allows more crap into the motor is going to have a much greater affect than a cat delete increasing exhaust scavenging and ultimately the VE of the motor. A reflash that increases timing a little bit and compensates for increased VE will increase a bit too, but again, less than filling your motor with sand.

Someone should email Porsche a link to this thread.

Check out the OEM filters in the GT3RS 4.0
