interesting, there are countless of reports(Google is your best friend) from all types of car onwers including owners of the N54 on a majority forums claiming smoother acceleration after installing a new intake and you suggest this is all mental and you expect me to take you seriously ?
The intake will give you two gains ... lower IATs and less restriction to flow. The restriction can be measured by logging WGDC and IATs are directly loggable. To determine the effectiveness of your intake you can log both and post.
I am still saying that installing an intake will not make your car run smoother with all else equal.
