    Default Cheap HP/TQ I-M intake heat shields

    Just wanted to pass this article along. I haven't purchased the product yet but I feel very confident that the results are genuine from reading the article. Also it makes complete sense that lowering intake temps produces power.

    Can't go wrong with those gains for $50-60 usd

    I read the article. It can't add hp. It can only prevent loss of hp because of heat soak. Looks legit though.
    Rest in Peace Charlie!

    Yea not necessarily adding extra HP but gaining back lost hp. Which is sort of gain. I get what you mean though. Car won't make hp over stock.
