Anyone know the HP and TQ gains for....

I'm looking to pick up an intake and Iíve had my eye on the AEM Brute Force for a while and the Volant. But I canít find HP or TQ gains anywhere. I called AEM and the rep didnít know. I remember there was a pretty significant increase in power with the Brute Force over the K&N in the SOHC, but AEM took down the numbers from their site. Iíll probably be investing in an exhaust system and tuner in the near future, but I figured Iíd start out with an intake. So does anyone know the approximate gains? And if not, which would be the better buy?

Sorry I don't know the actual gains, but from my experience, don't expect to much from them. The one's i'm used to looking at usually claim around 10Hp

I saw 11hp from the K&N. Which IMO is accomplishing the same thing.. just removing restrictions.

I've since taken the graphs down.. but search under "wydopnthrtl" and you'll find my measurements using autotap.
