Chevy Tahoe 30+ gains from intake

So I was talking to my one friends and i was telling him that he should get a intake for his truck. Well he took my advice and went to autozone and got all supplies. I asked him if he noticed anything differently. He said yes indeed. He said his 0-60 went from 14 seconds to 9 seconds..knowing that's complete bull, I asked what he thought he gained from the intake. He said "well my "truck" stock is 285hp, and it's about 325hp to 330hp now" any thoughts? I thought this was hilarious

That depends.... Did he apply the Autozone sticker to the side of the truck or to the back of the truck?

Reminds me of the scene in Fast and Furious 1 where 'the mad scientist' explains that if they just "lengthen the injector pulse", the front wheel drive Maxima in front of them will run 9 second quarters. If an intake dropped his 0-60 time by 5 seconds, VTEC must really be kicking in. Lol.

No no, he drives a truck so he must be from the sticks. It's VTAAAC.

Probably those stick on side vents. Helps with aerodynamics. Skull shift knobs help with quicker shifts too.

Does he have it rigged up with clothes dryer machine ducts? It's only pro if it's done like that.
