Default Re: Upset About Fixing My Pipe

The difference in speed between a leaky system and one buttoned up tight would be so marginal as for me to think it just might be a placebo effect caused by the noise level change. Something very similar to me happened when I first added a remote airbox, then later extended the silencer on the SBP pipe - both times the significant reduction in noise convinced my brain that my engine wasn't workin' as hard and that I must be going slower... except my GPS told me it was all in my head.

Given my brain's poor track record and it's propensity for lies regarding such things - I would believe my GPS lol
