Well, with an automatic with i/h/e I put down 140hp/138tq. I am happy with the numbers, as when Fujita dyno'd an xb with just their intake they put down 135/136 over their baseline run of 131/133. This was on a Dynojet dyno. The numbers may be slightly lower then they could be, I'm not sure what rpm/gear they pulled in, as I haven't received my slip yet via email. A new rs4 manual tc that was there with a Fujita intake put down 145/149 I believe it was, so not too shabby at all:) In the future I will likely be looking at F/I, but for now as my daily driver I'm happy with it. I will post up the slip as soon as I get it.

Oh, also, I did not have them do a pull in the sequential shift mode, I'm curious how much/if it would make a difference, since they would be able to control the rpm a little more and take it a little higher.

nice, so compared with just the intake it takes an additional $800 for 5hp more. crazy

? I spent like 700 total on my I/h/e. Strup header and exhaust and fujita intake, so my total gain was roughly 7-10hp which is about what I expected for bolt ons.

Ahh, yeah, you gotta catch/watch for deals;) I got my header for 350, intake and exhaust were around 200 a piece.

Thanks. Now I just have to decide whether I want to supercharge, I definitely don't want to turbo due to warranty/etc, so I will be waiting to see what kind of numbers the supercharger puts down and what the cost installed will be.

Thanks for the info. Now I know for a fact that will not be wasting any money on any of the stuff you installed. Maybe just an exhaust strictly to improve sound.

Roughly 6 or 7 hp from both, hard to tell though. I'm assuming the header made most of it since exhausts usually net less gain.

Yeah, just depends on what you are going for. I had a good idea of what numbers to expect from these parts. I'm happy with the sound/look/feel of the car so money well spent to me :)

A place called gearhead garage on guadalupe and baseline. It was their dyno day so 45 for two pulls and free bbq:) They are all cool guys so I recommend them. Too far for me to drive normally but a good place for east siders. They do the dyno day once a month.
