Yep. Cleaned the filter this morning. It's trying. I'll oil it tonight and test fit it. Going to try to get on the dyno soon. I'll do 3 pulls with my current setup and then 3 with the Dinan.

In for results. What filter set up did you have before? One of the pre mades or just a cone on a stick?

I had a velocity stack and intake shoved inside a gutted airbox with a snorkel feeding from the brake duct.

Video! - Excuse the audio. Flip + Youtube = poor quality. The exhaust is loud and gnarly, but not THAT bad. I laughed because txzhp04 made sure to cover his ears a bit this on this pull

Nice numbers, You might get 240 at the wheels with an AA tune.

Actually, I'm guessing that with the ATI damper the power might drop a little. Usually the peak number comes from a spike on the dyno. If the damper flattens things out, a couple HP drop might be realistic. I also don't expect much peak from the tune, just some extra meat under the curve That being said, 240whp is my goal before doing anything to the head. Here's hoping!

Here are a couple. I'll get some in better light when I get to work. I even put my fuel rail cover back on for you!

I'll be the first to say that you're right. I NEVER would have thought I'd get as much as 6whp in some places... over my hacked box (that also made a bit).
