Has anyone independently verified aFe's (frankly, unbelievable) claim of 12 hp/16lb/ft.

Yes, I searched the forum. Not looking for ass-dyno, seat-of-the-pants "feel".

Bullshit, pure and simple. Good luck getting more than 2-5 from it. It's mostly for sound.

As I expected. At least BMW makes believable claims for their (rather pricey but attractive) Performance Intake.

Actually, I'm kind of impressed by that torque figure. Is there a link? I'd like to see the graph to make sure it's not some peaky anomaly.
