From Shiv's Technical data about the Vishnu Dual-Cone Intake...

"This is also why drop-in air filter upgrades are only worth a few horsepower and not the 15-25whp we often see with our high flow Dual Intake System!"

Then, there's Terry's BMS Dual-Cone Intake dyno's @ +8WHP/+13 lb-ft. RWTQ...
I think it has to do with surface area and flow rates of the filters
I install all tunes, intakes, o2 simms, and most cosmetic mods. PM me for a quote.
