Cool, but for now I want to see G mans. If it is working out the 84/85s are performing better than the 90s, then I would definetly consider doing it for those numbers. Because up to now, on any board with a stock 5.0, emission legal, is not posting anywhere near those numbers. Only cars with headers.

Well im tuned with AED and i emailed Shaun before i bought any thing and he said that the Accufab is the one to have so that's what i bought. Didn't ask him reasons just took his advice and im pretty sure he knows a lot more than me about these cars so i didn't ask his reasoning. All he really said was stay away from the 90mm. I don't have any issues so far so i cant comment on the leaks that Steeda claims that these things get.

He also told me to purchase only the 85mm and not the 90mm.

Maybe the BBK and Accufab give me the same hp numbers. Hard to find dyno sheets comparision between the 2 units.

Yeah you think for such an expensive piece there would be more info available, funny though how one tuner recommends one and the other tuner recommends the other. Steeda was my first tune i had on my car and i loved it until i got re-tuned by AED. Car seems to run smoother and stronger now, But steeda is a great choice also for tuning and maybe they recommend the BBK cause that's what they sell on their site...who knows.

Steeda told me they can have both but did recommend me the BBK. They don't have any of the 2 models in stock. Don't know if the leaks are true. Anyway I don't think they will be a big difference in hp between the 2.

Before and after accufab dyno graph. Picked up some nice gains up tp 5400 rpm. I'm still working on getting my Boss Intake installed and getting some new b4 and after dyno pulls so stay tuned.

Back to back runs, right?

Does the power fall of after 5500 rpm vs. stock?

unfortunately not back to back, it was an overlay over my previous pull that had occurred a few weeks earlier under very similar weather conditions.

after 5400 rpms the power is about 1-2 hp more than the stock intake, which is where the Boss Intake should excel.

I'm not trying to make this a big deal or anything but I think a lot of people would be disappointed by the hype for $500.
I mean look, you've got headers, everything and with the exception on the high flow intake manifold. For $500 I want more than 12hp.
I do realize that mod are not one plus one equals 2. But I dont like things being hyped.
I do hope to see you pick up at least 10hp with the boss intake. good luck.

Whether a mod is worth it is all in the eye of the beholder. The same could be said for spending 500 dollars on an x or h pipe and get nothing but a different sound on a stock setup. At least with the TB you get the improved throttle response to go along with it no matter stock or not. Every mod is hyped so you will spend your money.

I like this mod, if it proves to gain at least 10 hp. Especially if its a mid-range gain. The other big plus, over other mods is that it doesn't require a tune and is easy to install. But I would like to see some independant testing, as i'm sure alot of others would as well.

I would like to see this tested on a bone-stock gt. Back to back dynos. W/o an intake or tune or boss mani, for a baseline test. Then add the mods and tunes and see if the gains, if any , hold or get better. Then f/i and test.

For a while I only had the JLT CAI, Stock manifold and Bama 93 Race tune. Few months ago a friend of mine ordered a BBK 85mm TB. We installed it first in my car and did a dyno test vs the baseline with JLT CAI and Bama 93.

BBK resulted in a tiny 6rwhp gain at high rpm. My baseline 391rwhp went up to 397rwhp after 6250rpm.

I just recently purchased an Accufab 85mm (I paid only $380 for a second hand unit with only 1000 miles in it) and a Boss 302 manifold (again second hand with 2000 miles for only $350). The Accufab is already installed on stock manifold but not dynoed yet. I will dyno once i install the boss manifold too.

What i can say is that Accufab is a way better built and incredibly sexy looking TB. The TB response is far superior than BBK. It really is almost like instant response from the engine. But the best way to install it is with a 3" to 4" step down coupler. It has a gigantic air intake opening that no standard CAI coupler will fit.

Honestly I'd still keep accufab even if it had provided no gains at all. The looks on a boss intake is amazing. The build quality makes your mouth water. The TB response is no way comparable to BBK. Driving is definitely more fun.
