Hey Chris, notice that the temperature was also higher on your second run. Pretty good stuff, maybe you would have registered more gains had the temps been the same as the first.
Here's a question for you since you dyno a lot: How do you compensate for the air flow and turbulence due to the vehicle speed. I think that dynos would be a lot more useful if they gave real figures for on road conditions (i.e. wind effect).

I only say this because parts designed for static intake flow will vary from those designed for dynamic intake flow. By intake flow I mean the airspeed before it reaches the first point on the intake tube (or filter in your case).
