Default Change in torque curve w/"Big Box" filter?

I've been running w/o a filter in the plenum since I can't remember - I (accidentally) bought a K&N filter for the plenum, and decided to run it with the K&N panel filter I already have in the main (small) airbox. I "think" I feel more torque down low...does that make any sense? The car doesn't feel any slower, and I'm fairly certain it pulls more strongly and immediately from low revs. Could there be some turbulence issuse or something in the plenum that a filter would balance? I know I don't need two filters, but I figured that two K&N panels would be the least restrictive stock setup, and also that the intake as is, might not be the most restrictive link in the chain, so adding 2nd filter might not reduce breathing to the point where power would be affected, that is, I may have had more flow capacity with a single panel than my engine setup could take advantage of... In which case I wouldn't mind the extra filtration.

Thoughts? Experiences? Instumented Tests? Rhetoric? Unsubstantiated Character Attacks? Gangsta Rap? Haiku?

I only have a lot of hearsay and conjecture...

But anyway, It's probably your imagination... Did you do an ECU reset after changing filter. It's not necessary, but different air flow, your ECU would take a while to learn, and if just reset, you might feel more on the butt dyno....

just a few thoughts....
