Cold Air Intakes - Dyno Comparison?

Haven't been on the boards for a while but it seems there are some new kits on the market and not much proven performance data. I've always wondered why one of the supporting vendors doesn't spend a day on the dyno with all the popular cold air kits and gather some actual facts about what the performance gains actually are for each unit. Just set the truck up like most of us - SCT, exhaust, zoodad and CAI. So, who wants to finally put an end to all the conjecture?

The only dyno sheet I was able to find was for the new Injen/Amsoil filter. Test show factory filter output of 222.99hp/348.11tq and Injen/Amsoil output of 248.19hp/388.79tq to the wheels. I would guess that this is on a bone stock truck otherwise, but the numbers are impressive. What' everyone else got to show?

You have got to be kidding me - with the multitude of threads on "What cold air intake is the best" nobody but me wants to see some actual results? Come on vendors, somebody step up to the plate and make this happen.

Where in the dyno numbers did the airfilter make the hp? Impressive numbers? 25hp? I would think a 4" exaust dropping egts is more impressive and a tuner that adds 100+ hp impressive. As the topic has been covered to this point the intake is more needed for 500+ hp applications. I would think if that wasn't the truth then there would be a lot more info out for them. The advertised gains don't give a lot of info I believe because the manufactures of the products don't want the consumer to be more educated as to why they don't need their product. Of course people will continue to buy the cai based on ads and either previous exp with gassers or hearing they do wonders. I think the only benifit on a stock truck is noise....

That is the whole reason someone should actually do the dyno testing. I know lots of people have said that the stock intake is good for 500hp but let's see it on the dyno. I am no stranger to the basic add-ons for our trucks as you can see from my sig, but I am looking for that extra edge just like the next guy without having to spend huge $$$ for turbo, injectors, trans, etc. If someone wants to send my some of the various CAI kits, I'll spend my dime for the dyno sessions.

I think you would be very disappointed to actually see what $300.00 to $500.00 actually buys.
