Agency Power Intake, Any Gains?

I have recently installed an AP Intake, and I was just wondering if anyone has done any dyno runs with one?

I have dyno'd my car a couple of times so far, and just wonder if anyone has seen any increase or decrease in power with an AP Intake?
  • 100% Stock, and it came out at 337 Engine HP
    MPPSK and Stock Intake came out at 383 Engine HP

Plus a shameless YT video of my car lol.

Why is it B58 intakes just don't seem to have the same sound as N54?
N54 with DCI had really nice turbo whistle even on part throttle. I just don't hear it with B58.

Its hard to get on film, but it does have a nice whistle and noise under load.
My wife thought the car was broken when she got in it after fitting lol.
I like the noise when you let off the accelerator.
I've noticed that it sounds louder when driving around town in eco pro

Ill never see that gain then

I'm looking at getting it mapped after warranty is up, and will do a dyno run before that as I'd like to keep a record of how the power gains have progressed.

A dyno run would be interesting!

I'm not sure about engine and intake noise, but exhaust note is definitely different between the two in my opinion.

Was that on a stock engine? Do you think it would be much different on a MPPSK map?

Was there any TQ reduction with the open intake over stock? Because that's usually the case across most automotive platforms.
