Anything that cleans up the engine bay is a good thing.

Glad to see we're on the same page concerning the 28HP claim made by K&N.
My dyno runs were made using your basic 300HP 930 engine. I could see an air filter becoming restrictive on a high HP engine but was not surprised when no significant difference showed up on the more typical stockish configuration. It's fairly difficult to get distinctly reproducible results at the 5HP or so range on an air cooled turbo engine. Lots of runs in lots of different temperatures. In my mind if I have to look that hard for it it isn't significant.

Did you ever compare the PowerFlow to the EagleDay unit?

I lost touch with Michael when I left IL a few years back. Interesting fellow.
