3 HP for debaffling the airbox? First I've heard of that. Is this really true? I noticed a slight improvement in high end power, but I also switched out my very old and dirty stock filter for a K&N. That combo might get you 3hp, but only because of the K&N--if I'm not mistaken. BTW my wife's from near the U in Seattle--think it's called Lakeside...
