Our intake has been independently tested by a US tuner on a Supra with downpipe and tune. The tests were done back to back on the same day with only the airbox being changed for our intake system. As can be seen there is a performance gain for a large portion of the RPM range with some areas showing over 20hp gain. This is the result of derestricting the inlet path while maintaining low inlet temperatures by keeping a fully sealed system.
Dyno testing an open cone system with the hood open will yield gains but once on the road with the hood closed the heat soak will cause a significant detriment to the power with the open cone sucking in hot air which is a significant problem on the Supra since the intake is directly next to the exhaust manifold and turbo. . With higher air temperature being less dense, the turbo will not make as much boost resulting in lower power. Furthermore, once the car is accelerating and the open cone intake has pulled through the standing hot air present, they will continue to pull in the heat generated by the engine and turbos as they spool. With the engine under load and accelerating, turbos produce a lot of heat which can even be seen with the hot sides glowing red. This is why we designed our system fully sealed.
