    The only way to figure this out is to take YOUR car with YOUR mod to a dyno or track. There is no way to say that an ls/vtec with an aem CAI will make XXX horse to the wheels. it simply can't be done. There's too many variants in engines in the first place, plus other factors such as how it was built and tuned.

    Remember, 2 stock motors will more likely than not dyno at the same figure, albiet it will be relatively close.

    Basically, don't be upset when we say we can't tell you and to run it at a track or dyno. Afterall, estimates are usually wrong anyway.


    We can't tell you. None of your friends can tell you. The only way to get a true number is to put your car on a Dyno, or go to the track and run it and compare your times/numbers.

    Don't be upset when we tell you we can't say, and direct you here. We are just trying to keep things Legit and real :: no BS about "yeah you will run 9's".

    This goes for the "who will win" scenarios as well. We don't know how you drive, how your friend drives, or any of the hundreds of factors that will effect a race. The only way to know is for you to race.
