i honestly think if you run some statistical tests... the data wouldn't be significant enough to say that the Mr. 5 intake is actually better.. there are a lot of variables that can alter the data by such a small amount... this is almost like saying you did a 0-60 mph run and the mr. 5 intake ran 3.93 and the DCI ran 3.96... there is no way that you can say that the intake is better off of such a small difference...
