    How would this compare to a ROW air box, with similar filters? The C/F looks nice, but for a lot less $$$, the performance gain might be about the same.

    I'd have to see specs on this intake and some dyno results before deciding. Plus I'm not sure what the pricing is either.

    I already have row boxes. The renntech boxes do provide substantial gains. Im not sure who but a couple of years ago some one did back to back testing At the strip and picked up .2 down the 1/4 and 2mph in trap! Thats a big gain.

    Naturally aspirated that's a sizeable gain.

    Track Data proving the RENNtech Air Box is the real deal!

    Here are all my track times from Island Dragway over the past
    couple of weeks. DA as per listed on Dragtimes.com


    Island Dragway - October 15th 2010 - Carbonio Intake
    Run 1: 12.246 @ 115.13 (DA: 909)
    Run 2: 12.287 @ 115.11 (DA: 909)
    Run 3: 12.144 @ 115.51 (DA: 764)
    Run 4: 12.004 @ 116.25 (DA: 764)
    Run 5: 12.449 @ 115.88 (DA: 768) Manual Mode
    Run 6: 12.112 @ 116.10 (DA: 768)
    Run 7: 12.044 @ 116.73 (DA: 756)
    Run 8: 12.142 @ 116.33 (DA: 756)
    Run 9: 12.128 @ 116.00 (DA: 756) Manual Mode

    Island Dragway - October 22nd 2010 - Carbonio Intake
    Run 1: 12.005 @ 116.58 (DA: -409)
    Run 2: 12.054 @ 116.32 (DA: -628)
    Run 3: 12.484 @ 114.39 (DA: -975) Manual Mode
    Run 4: 12.012 @ 116.43 (DA: -1051)
    Run 5: 11.947 @ 116.61 (DA: -1127)

    Island Dragway - October 29th 2010 - RENNtech Air Box**
    Run 1: 12.151 @ 116.29 (DA: -37)
    Run 2: 11.972 @ 117.39 (DA: -123)
    Run 3: 11.850 @ 118.37 (DA: -194)
    Run 4: 11.933 @ 117.89 (DA: -194)

    **The RENNtech air box replaced the Carbonio on all runs that took
    place on October 29th. The first run was attributed to the ECU adjusting
    to the increase in airflow. As you can see all the following runs were sub
    12 second runs and the increase in trap speed is a clear indication that
    the RENNtech air box is making a substantial amount of power over the
    Carbonio.

    That was me. Click here to enlarge

    Also, the RENNtech air box made more power on the dyno. Same day, same dyno.

    Made a pull with the RENNtech box and the car put down 481rwhp, removed it and put the stock boxes back on. Next pull with the stock boxes, 467rwhp. Made another pull, low 460's. Put the RENNtech box back on, made a pull and 482rwhp.

    That's the way to do it and quite a nice improvement from an airbox. If anyone didn't believe it now they should.

    I don't know about that. People don't want to spend money.

    I'm amazed at how many people don't want to pay for a good tune for example.
