Porting the ports does nothing, opening the throat up does nothing, cutting the stands out does nothing. Actually I will say that without touching any of those areas, I can get 5-10 tq and about that much power too!
Any chance you would help me with this project.

What Rhino is seeing is right along the lines of what we see as well. Some moght hit 18 or so, but figure 15 on average. You can easily ruin these as well since the composite is "sonic welded" together so if you try and take to much out you cause leakage between the runners and it results in less power than stock...and we see tons ruin them.

There is definately plenty of area to work on.

Merc I'm getting mine done as we speak right now so I will be able to somewhat tell the gains on this. I'm also doing a few other things so it won't just be intake gains but should be interesting nevertheless.

I had a stock intake worked on for me, and it's about to be sent back to me. I'll keep folks posted but I'm not going to post any info until it's on and the car is re-tuned.
