Last dyno I had produced 454 HP and 509 ft-lb torque.

today I dynoed at 458 HP and 520 ft-lb torque.

It was done on two different dynos, on different days, so take it for what its worth.

Im still waiting for the emailed graph so I can post comparison, hopefully I'll get it tomorrow.

A/F is still all over the place, but as usual, still waiting for RT or Creative to do something about it. Guess I shouldnt hold my breath.

It's still a nice piece. The fact that it did produce power is an added bonus.

If you like the V8's then go straight for a used E55,best of both worlds.

chuckie, you using the foam filter it came with or did you have a k&n or green filter in the stock unit like most guys do? just wondering if the gain actually came from the carbon fiber box or the filters it came with? the foam one's should flow a little bit better than paper filters so if the gain was from the foam filters then you probably could have spent a couple of bucks just for the filters.

it was with the foam filters. I knew it would be mostly cosmetic. I think I jumped on it because I got the r&d pricing on it.

I just feel sorry for people who buy the RT box and expect "30 HP"

Chuk, can you list all your mods? I will be interested to see if you need to modify TB, Headers, etc. for this box to make a difference.

I am having some difficulty with the 80mm air-box install but if they can get the thing bolted in on Wednesday. I will be able tell you if true gains are achieved when I head to the track on Friday.
