That's not even considering the improvement in throttle response and slight increase in power.
what if the scoops and more power make you drive harder... than your logic is not sound.

Lol...
It's actually amazing.. Fits perfectly though it doesn't have an RPI logo/print.. That's probably the $160 cost..

At least they're giving you $100 store credit to shop more on their online store..

wow sorry to hear that bud. Fortunately for e60 RPI is the way to go, I actually did notice a slight difference in acceleration specially when is cold outside. The only thing that's weird is that where did you pay $200 for this??? lmao. I got mine for $75 from RPI themselves. WOW thats a lot of money for a piece of metal.

On a side note kind of sad mod bargains didn't change their pricing once their "error" was pointed out to them..lol
How do you replicate windspeed of doing 80 mph, on a dyno?

Every scoop thread is a hoot!
That said, just bought a pair of Cyba myself.
With AC on, can't tell a difference.
With AC turned off, maybe a little more pull....

$200? I paid $45 shipped for my MSD Red Scoops from a member on the forums...Practically brand new, very sturdy aluminum. The red really pops out with my JB paint. They were originally less than $100 brand new....

Sorry to say, but you got ripped off pretty bad. I've seen AFE stage 2 intakes going for around $200 on a good day...

I doubt it achieved wind speeds even close to 80 mph.

Simply put, no. Search, and you will see proof of this.
