So more air can get in the intake. Its more a track thing more than actually driving on the streets that way.

For reasons that are not to be talked about on Bonneville club. But lets say with a CAI and heatshield if you remove your drivers side headlight it significantly lowers IAT and which inturn does actually add horsepower. So if you wanted to go faster on the street it is a logical but not legal way to make a few more ponies

I'm guilty of a few of those also.

Sounds like Pat just described most of the NEBF crowd.

You forgot one............

You drive cross country to attend a 3800 event
