Kinda makes me wonder what I'm gonna need to do to properly "adapt" the stock intake once I put it back in to dyno tomorrow.
Interesting, b/c typically with these kind of mods, you would notice more of a difference if you're tuned. Although, it certainly can be difficult to feel a +10WHP on a tuned car with ~ 340+WHP.

In addition, I can see how you would notice a difference going from a completely stock car; e.g. adding an intake, exhaust, etc. I remember adding an intake to my previous N/A car, an Infiniti G35 Sedan, and there was a significant difference in sound and throttle response.
