well yeah, it says that, but i just liked the hypothesis/reasoning they use. Piping before the MAF (ie, cold air piping), in addition to a velocity stack may help to prevent air from concentrating into a stream that causes the MAF sensor to read too high a voltage, which would richen up the AF ratio and negate and power gains, and possibly even cause a loss in power in certain parts of the powerband. yeah come dyno day i'll be trying out my intake with and without a velocity stack to see if gains are there

i guess i'll also make mention of R2C, found out about this company since i'm on myg37 forum as well. They apparently make some of the best filters for cars--high filtration and low restriction in comparison to other brands.
