Any time that you decrease the resctriction of a FI engine (on the intake side in this case) you will see an increase in boost; some are more dramatic than others. You seem to pride yourself in trying to prove others wrong, so why not pull the filter off of yours and see what happens?? I'm willing to bet you will see similar results, as ESS and Gintani set-ups seem to perform similarly on the dyno (depsite what fanboys say for either party).
