I already have the flash and am quite happy with it along with the extra added warranty coverage but to add an extra 12hp/13tq at the prices quoted above seems a bit ridiculous, or am I missing something?

Seems like there are better ways to spend less and get more, no? FMIC or even an LCD come to mind as good examples, yes? No interest in meth or DPs.
Spend the money on the Dinan FMIC and the exhaust. Remember those Dinan intake numbers are crank numbers. Attached you will find my "mustand dyno" WHP/WTQ results of stock intake w/K&N filter vs aFe Stage 2 Elite SI

Of course I custom sealed it for less than $10 and a trip to home depot, and this intake is"significanlty" cheaper than Dinan's CAI with better performance.
