They took a C-5 (non-Z06) and added an air intake system with a k&n. They dynoed a 21 rwhp gain with the screen in the mass air flow sensor intact just from the intake alone. I am very skeptical about their results. They then did a computer reprogram and netted another 10 hp at the rear wheels. I think there could have been something wrong with their dyno or they are corrupt. Anyone else see it??

Did you also notice that when they dynoed it stock it only got 260HP. WTF?

I saw that. I have a feeling that the makers of those parts had the dyno results rigged, OR they are just plain stupid. There is no way that those numbers are accurate and it doesn't take a dyno either to tell me. A 350 HP Corvette making 260 at the rear wheels stock means it lost about 26%, not realistic. Then adding a filter and intake nets 21 rear wheel??? The only way that would happen is if the old filter element was completely clogged.
