Butt dynos are not very reliable with intakes due to the sound changes. But its not possible for the intake to reduce torque, that is governed by boost which is regulated. The power gains do come in at higher RPM where the OEM airbox becomes more restrictive but never makes less power than stock.

Regarding idle issues I've yet to hear of any provided the intake is installed properly.
