I just dynoed my car a couple weeks back before putting on my CAI and TBE on mustang dynanometer in stock form and it ended being 244whp and 258ft torque. dont have a scanner so cant post up results but i was very pleased with the results, but after putting the exhaust on the numbers got up to 268whp and 270ft torque.

^^^

The way I look at it is even if that dyno is high, those gains are very real. 25 HP and 32 TQ is a damn good gain from the CAI/CBE combo. Right in line with what Mazda claimed.

CAI = Cool air Intake?
CBE = Catback Exhaust?
ETS = ?
TMIC = ?

Sorry, just too many abbreviations.

Wanted to add another data point )7 MS 3 sport - bone stock, 9 k miles. I got 224 whp and 245 ftlbs tq. AF was smooth starting at 12.0 at 3k rpm, dropping to 11.5 by 5 k rpm then moving up to 12.0 at 6.5 k rpm. This was on a Dynocom dyno which reads significantly lower than dynojet. I bought the car yesterday and dynoed it today :lol:

Here is my dyno after installing my CP-E CAI. The stock run was at 55 degrees, raining, no fan. Mod run was about 80 degrees, 30% humidity, with a fan in front of the car. I am at about 4800 feet elevation. I picked up 15 hp and 18 tq from my stock dyno. Stock was 192 hp and 226 tq. Car definitely feels stronger and sounds waaay cooler.

Drivetrain loss:

FWD is typically 10-15%
RWD is typically 18-25%
AWD is typically 20-30%

i dynoed 227hp and 260 tq. based on drivetrain loss % that's about right considering heatsoak/ambient temp,fan here or there etc. some folks that posted don't seem to have any drivetrain loss at all :lol: i should get ms cai, maybe i can gain 50hp and 50 lbs of tq. if numbers are too good to be true then something is wrong with the dyno.

Dyno run # 3: Stock baseline. Fan on radiator
Dyno run # 4: COBB Short Ram Intake ($175) installed. Fan on radiator.
Dyno run # 6: Fan on top mount intercooler. :shock:

Hood down with a bloody BIG fan at the front of the car will work best and be the closest to "real world" running.
Only other way is to have a fan pointed straight down from above the IC to hit it with cool air. Pointing a fan from the front with the hood up blows air across the IC and is next to useless when it comes to pulling heat out.

Cheers!

I did exactly that today and ran a 25 mph shop fan to the upper and lower grill. 246 whp / 290 wtq baseline, 274 / 308 with a MSCAI (dynapack).

28hp from a CAI...wow...that means the factory airbox design is pretty much garbage or designed primarily for noise reduction...

Hopefully the MSCAI is available if I pickup a speed3.

Do you have the breakdown of how much power you picked up at 6,000 rpm? That would be good to see if you got a little more usable power up to the 6000rpm area. The power falls off so fast a 15 or 20hp improvement at 6k would be nice.
