The intent/purpose of that hose you removed was to dampen the intake noise. When you removed that hose, the intake is just louder. Since you year LOUD, your brain interpreting it as FASTER/better performance.

Does it make sense?

If it's getting more air it could add some HP. Nothing over 5 though, that's for sure.
