DIY Tymar Performance Gain?

Has anybody ever ran their rig on the dyno to see what kind of gain they get from the Tymar intake? I'm just curious if it makes a big difference. I put one on my truck and i know i'm getting better fuel mileage, but i'm curious about the power increase also. Any input would be great!!

Thanks guys

Nope, don't think so. Intake and exhaust are more "supporting" the power adding mods. They'll really boost your #'s once you start messing with your tuning.

I got a superchips programmer, again more for the mileage, but it's definately a big power increase. I'm not out to be pushin the crazy numbers, but i don't mind being able to blow a little smoke and walk away from somebody either! The biggest thing i can tell for a difference is the sound. I can really hear the turbo and the blow-off. Is that normal too?

you are definetly helping your engine and turbo with the tymar, might not be huge gains, but it sure can breath better. Now just straight pipe it and listen

It is straight piped. Sounds crazy! Very good though. Lots of whistle out the pipe.
