But anyway, I've POSTED the information requested

See, I had no problem with Matt or his dyno, other
than no one "sanity checked" the temperatures
that day.. The supposed drop in temperatures
skewed the results rather badly. When you look
at the environmental conditions, they SAY "we
think it was so hot for the first runs we did
another cooldown" yet the dyno is showing that
the room was infact suddenly about 10deg cooler
BEFORE the cooldown.

Simply put the environmental sensor for temp
was wonked.

When you ask the dyno for the ACTUAL horsepower
put out that day (as opposed to using it's
own environmental sensors to calculate some
correction factor) you get the printout below.

into the PDF writer (printed into PDF). If you
take all the "actual" runs you get very VERY
similar curves BTW, which I've skipped since I
hear all the naysayers when I make an Excel plot.

So, here's the data.. fact, pure and simple.

If you really want a test.. run both intakes
for 3-4mos and then retest (we did) and then
you can buy the beer next time I see you ;)
