Hymee can trick the dyno and claim his exhaust gain 13kW at the wheel. Being a honest decent gentleman like our King Hymee, he only claim 2kW increase in his highly refined product :p

Choose carefully who do you believe.

I saw 19kW quoted for cat-back and air cleaner, in a nationally published magazine. Does that mean it is even better??

I think L&L is right on the money for hoisting that flag.

I have published dyno charts showing how you can get ~8HP gain just by letting your powertrain get really nice and hot!

BTW - This reminds me of something I read in the article on the RotarMaster turbo prototype. See this thread/post https://www.rx8club.com/showthread.p...759#post408759

Cheers,
Hymee.
