Paul:

I tend to quote dyno numbers vs. crank hp as that gives a WAY better idea of how much power a particular mod will give.

For example: Import tuner say their x-intake makes 5-7 hp at the crank. But on a dyno, that intake as a bolt-on makes 1-2 hp.

Of course, which set of numbers sells better?

So I can agree your numbers for the CAI/Software are close for flywheel quotes. But that not what I would tell me friends.
