Eventuri-ly, someone will find out they wasted their $$$! Christ, I did an IS20 upgrade and a DP for the same cost. Let's compare HP gained per dollar spent, lol.

Do intakes actually increase power on the EA888 platform? Like...is there any actual dyno proof that HASN'T been posted by the vendor/manufacturers?

I know on the WRX's they do absolutely nothing but increase the intake spooling and swish swish sounds from the BPV and make it much harder to tune. This seems to be the case with most turbo platforms, especially modern ones. Factory intakes are typically capable of flowing plenty of air, its the exhausts/charge pipes that are the restrictions.
