OZZ78 the CAI
dyno is NO WHERE NEAR the same.. the max power band is widened by almost 1500RMPs from the stock peak, 3000 rpm torque increase is very impressive on dyno almost 10fp -tq (although it doesn't bring it up to above peak at that point, but it used to be around 90 and after CAI
installed torque at 3000rpm is over 100)torque is leveled out across the band, it's MUCH higher in the high end (where it dips below 90lb -ft on stock Intake
). the ONLY place where it doesn't increase torque is right at around 1000rpm. to say it's "close" is totally wrong, just because it PEAKS at only 3-7lb -ft higher.. plus like I said before, you can't dyno throttle response. I PROMISE you, drive a car with CAI
before you pass judgment.. there is a reason this is the first mod everyone does (and it's not for sound, or popularity).
YOU CAN'T LOOK AT PEAKS ONLY, you have to look at what it does across the band. Torque peak is worthless if you don't look at the entire torque graph, a car (like the GT) can SPIKE to 125, but only be above 105 between 4000 and 5000RPM (also like the GT), with a CAI
installed that 1000RPM max powerband widens to 2600RPM to 5000RPM (in other words you have good power for a 2400RPM range instead of only a 1000rpm range) ... that is a HUGE difference it's WELL worth it. [ 04-18-2003, 06:57 PM: Message edited by: FX-MAN ]
