In further discussions with JS, we think there were parts of the test that might've been flawed. For example, we're pretty sure the first run of the Pilo (the highest) was done without ECU reset, possibly benifiting from the stock learned history. Secondly, JS feels that while observing the last three runs of the AGS, he is not convinced that the operater ran the Mini to it's full redline. You guys only have the tip of iceberg. I just sent out what Chad provided me as to not hold you guys up. I would've prefer to wait to get the full information myself and provide that. Chad's swamped with DT work but said he would expidite...shoulda requested a copy myself while at they shop I'm pretty sure it has very detailed data of rpm and more importantly, time to rpm which would indicate which intake provided best throttle response.

We'll get those information out to you guys ASAP

Good data guys . From the looks of things, the Alta wins for hp but the AGS (while a couple hp shy), equals or beats the torque of the Alta. Also, that last run with air blowing into the filter gets pretty darn close to Alta hp numbers but with less torque than previous runs . What seems really weird is the AGS must flow less air than the Alta at high rpm's. How else would the Alta win in hp but come up a little short on torque?

MSFITOY, I can't wait to see the complete charts when you get them.

Great job, even with the flaws it's better information than I have seen compiled before. Big kudos for even trying something like this out and taking it upon yourself to do it. Great job.

That said.... I would have really liked to see a JCW airbox on this. There's a little bit of selfishness, since that's what I have, but it would have given more information to the argument of whether or not the JCW (and the warranty that goes with it) is worth the $$$.

JCW is about having factory bits and the name/prestige too isn't it?

The numbers are all, relatively speaking, so close anyway that I doubt a butt dyno would be able to tell the difference. The good thing is that it shows an improvement over the stock setup so there are real benefits as well as the increased aural pleasures.

But we got what we paid for, and that was either $10 or nothing! At least, it's in the public domain.....
