Default Surprised by the inprovement!

So a few nights ago I gutted my airbox and finally today I had the time to go pick up a drop in K&N. And the combo really surpised me I didn't think I would get as much of a improvement as I did. (my old Fram was a tad dirty too.) I also noticed what looked like more boost, the needle stops climbing right at the start of the redline on the boost gauge.

Great work, Now if you do a full intake you'll probably feel it in you gut too! I see by your six posts that you are fairly new, so welcome
