It improves throttle response on a car that has high miles (i.e. dirty charcoal filter). I have personally noticed that it feels less laggy.

I don't think anyone is doing it with claims of gaining any real power. If they are...fail.

I did this mod several weeks ago since I had to open the airbox anyways. I know there's no significant HP gains but did notice better throttle response and my mpg improved by almost 2 mpg (mixed city/hwy). Again this was my personal experience in San Diego, maybe results differ based on factors related to location?
