Well oem items such as intakes etc generally speaking are only restricted at high rpm's, hence why power gains are made at high revs generally due to either DB/EPA restrictions of the oem items.

I guess its easy to get caught up in the marketing promises of 20-30-40HP increase expecting it to be throughout the rev range instead of 5-7k rpm peak power only
