Default K&N Typhoon, great product, Dyno proven.

October 30th I dyno'd my car stock, then with the K&N Typhoon. The car made +12.76 whp and +11.97 ft-lbs of torque with the Typhoon. I was very surprised and very pleased!!!

The AFR's remained virtually identical.

Here is my graph:

I've been on NASIOC for 3 years now and have watched the vendors and users go back and forth about intakes. (maybe the bigger debate is why so much squabble over a mod that only gives you some extra power in the higher rpms...)

so here is a good summary:

I have a completely stock 05 STi that I've held off on modding. This saturday, at Mach V, we are going to baseline my STi stock, then with the h;=K&n typhoon intake. We will be recording AFR's the whole time.

Link to the intake I bought and dyno charts:

Iím hoping to get some real undeniable data out of this test and silence some of the 2nd hand opinions that get thrown around on nasioc.

My expectations:

The K&N Typhoon will give me little to no power gain down low, and 3-5 whp at top. Because in intake tube diameter is the same as stock, and because this intake has an air baffle, I'm expecting the AFR's to remain reasonably close to stock.

When: I got the first two dyno slots to do this: 9AM - 10:20AM. If your interested in this.. come and check it out!
so thats it! unabomber.. time to update your FAQ!
