jschaff is an unknown quantity at this point
I purchased the Ground Control gizmo to add HP by relieving the air flow resistance. It is supposed to add around 5HP based on their dyno.

I also just went to a presentation by Steve Dinan here at Autoscope. He said that for all of their mods, they dyno the car with the part to be modified remove completely ( when possible ) and dyno the car to see what the theoretical HP gain would be without this part at all. Then they see how close they can get with the modified part.

This is my question to everyone.

Why not just take the screen out completely and NOT put in the gizmo piece at all? What will be the downside of having nothing in place of it?

Thanks

it prevents large particles (i.e. pieces of broken airbox, or rocks that puncture the air filter) from destroying the HFM...

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.
