Im not really a big fan of the dci's either, but I am not sure this is a fair comparison..any open element filter is probably gonna lose power on the dyno with the hood closed. It doesnt simulate the type of airflow that would be getting to the intake on the road; on the dyno it would just suck in lots of hot air. Did you do any vbox/gtech testing of the afe vs. stock intake?
