you know what's really interesting about the posted dyno is that it offers gains in hp/trq @ low rpms, too - unlike most aftermarket intakes.
an interesting comparison would be to see how well the knock-off fares against the boutique piece. if the actual filter elements are the same, the difference in performance would be the result of differences in details & quality of manufacture.
but, wouldn't that be an interesting comparison?
