Personally I think the K&N's are a pain in the ass to clean and reuse. Nice to know that a clean OEM paper filter is just as good.
I am surprised that the extra weight and complexity of the two-path muffler buys nothing but a better sound; that means so much restriction up stream that nothing left to gain. Wish I had the 2ublar downpipe in place to remove one more more variable between our systems, but with what I got, I believe your 5% gain from hardware beat my gains if the tune was backed out. I believe this is the most expensive Hp I have ever purchased. When I get the old parts back home to the same scale I can see how many ounces I saved.
