How many miles were on it when you ran your baseline?

You only gained 7 HP from CAI and VMax?

I had about 5k on the engine and about 21k when I ran it with the CAI. I haven't had a chance to clean my filter since I've installed , so I'm going to chalk it up as poor maintenance on my part for the poor gains.

Thanks man ! My car feels so much better now after the tune, the idle is smoother, Matt deleted the 1-4 skip shift and it set the fans to turn on earlier.

Sapper-love your thread and what you've done with your car, thanks for sharing it. I especially like your step by step dyno runs. It is very instructive to see where the real power comes from (your tuner) and the bloated claims by the aftermarket go-fast parts guys. Nice job. My car is headed for similar perf mods although the fact that it's a vert complicates things a little on the exhaust build. From what I've seen on other builds, 425 rwhp is a good result from these mods and that's about where I want my car to end up.

I wanted to documented my progress because I wanted to see the HP gains in increments and were my money went. Just got tired of seeing threads were people get a stock car and next thing you know they are pushing 500 HP.

I'm going to tackle a custom cam next , showing HP gains , torque and drive ability .

FYI .... Have 23k miles on stock tires and expect to get another 4k miles out of them before I need to replace them.

I discovered today that the ACS T4 chin splitter is not designed to withstand high speeds. I was on the highway heading to work and hit a pocket of high cross wind. Next thing I know I hear a loud thump and see the splitter in my rear view mirror floating away.

Got my R1 Concept rotors installed with new stainless steel brake lines.

Even painted the slots and drilled holes black to make them pop!
