Sounds like youguys had a quite of fun there while I didn't have time to check out the post. I'm still stuck in Coronado for the conference.

Disappointed with the results though. :cry:

What, exactly are you dissapointed about? Keep in mind these results should only be used in comparison to each other and nothing else. If it's the overall results that have you worried, as I stated there, it was VERY hot and humid; in cooler weather, I averaged a good .4-.5 sec quicker WITHOUT the pulley. If it's the Injen results, well, we need to wait a bit for Dave's ECU to adjust and we'll do some more runs before passing judgement, but also keep in mind that an intake isn't always the greatest as a stand-alone mod; it works best when used in conjunction with other bolt-ons.

No Cold air

I can testify to the fact that there was no Cold Air (except in the beer coolers) on the 31st. It was sweltering. Wait till the pics are posted, we were all wringing wet and the only one that lifted a wrench was MGFR. Easily +100F and humidity in the 90s also. Cool air would be appreciated, come on down and bring some w/you!

Yes- it was definitely one of our tougher tasks, on that blistering day, but someone had to do it. However we managed to split the heiny hiking fairly evenly between us. The margeritas is what did me in. I was just fine cruising on the suds, and then MGFR pulls out the heavy equipment (blender). He's a slave-driver!

I'm driving to Galveston this evening and then right back. Should have some more miles on it. If I feel some difference in the mid/low end I'll do another run with MGFR. He said anytime.

I was referring to the result from Dave's Injen. For some reason I was expecting it to shave off more sec than Stillen would.

Not much difference

I don't know about the lower end, maybe its just the roar that kicks in at 5200 and extends to redline. I would absolutely love it, if that roar and the associated Zoom-Zoom started at around 4000RPM or even 4500RPM; but I think unless the ECU is still learning- that's probably it. I've put a couple hundred miles on FX, in varying driving circumstances and not much difference over the last couple of days. I may be there and just don't know it. I will try and get by MGFRs this weekend and get him to make a couple of runs- if he will have me back.
NOTE- At WOT from standing start (in Auto) the CAI starts coming in a little below 5000 and is very noticable ( audibly and feel) at 5200RPM and continues through redline- FX shifts to second and comes in below 5200RPM (just a bit) and the CAI is there too- But not completely there- for couple hundred RPM yet. Between second and third it's there completely, no lagbetween the shift at all. I suspect it's related to the gearing. At WOT it's pretty loud, but as far as I can tell it appears to be through the exhaust opposed to the intake. Maybe I'm getting old and can't tell anymore. NOT!
