is the dinan intake being down low near the bumper has a higher chance of sucking in water. I think this can be prevented with another filter which only allow air thru.
ECIS dyno's can be found here. All we need now is the Dinan's for comparison.
I agree that there are many variables, but as long as the before-and-after dyno conditions are similar in each instance, the delta values can still make meaningful comparisons. It would be such a cop-out to discredit dyno results completely just b/c there are variables involved.B said:That's useless... comparing dynos from two different cars, on different days, in different places, with different setups, on different dynos is about as accurate as me randomly pulling numbers of out a hat!

Don't worry, I'm entirely aware of that. Because of the adaptive nature of the ECU, a mildly-driven car can gain a few HP from successive dyno runs. I have a certain amount of faith in ECIS' posted dyno's b/c it's pretty consistent from other independently obtained results.B said:so you just assume before-and-after dyno conditions would be similar? you don't expect companies to use the variables in their favor? get real...
dyno testing OBD-II equipped cars is not that accurate of a measurement to begin with. If you ran your car twice in a row, you could get runs that vary from 3-5 hp/tq difference... without changing anything!
I'm just trying to help you all not go by the marketing hype...
