A 5% gain is difficult to perceive for most. Anything less is just optimism. A filter alone will account for typically less than 1% if even that.

IMO, a clean stock filter will yield about the same gains as a maintenance type filter. So you can continually replace the factory filter, I do at every oil change, or maintain a filter and end with essentially the same power depending on when it was last changed or maintained.
