The Kevlar intake reduces front end weight, yielding better balance and weight distribution for better handling.
Less weight equals faster.

Because we all know how much unnecessary weight those intakes add. Smdh

Still waiting for proof for those outrageous power increase claims for a stock Golf R. I just emailed Eventuri. And look at their own dyno - they claim 25 HP gain at redline but only 15 at the junction.

And just remember, there is no way to measure HP.

I think dynos use a calculation of torque and rotational speed to "measure" horsepower. I think Fed is being literal but you both are technically correct.

On that note, I should probably add that nobody has ever seen horses inside their engine bay
