"Typically only good for up to ~15HP tops, so you wouldn't notice a seat of the pants difference."
Light cars with high revving engines even? My buddy marc put one in his GT3 Corvair, and was asking me 'does it make sense that it seems to be coming out of corners harder?'
Seems like Marc noticed something...
Did I? Nope, but I know it's in there, stripping windage, and keeping oil in the pan, where it can be sucked up by the pickup and used again quickly.
In high speed rotating equipment, adding a windage tray on gearmesh engagement areas of a 300HP gearbox resulted in an IMMEDIATE 25HP reduction in power required to drive the geartrain. This mean that horsepower could be used for making end product, and not as internal, parasitic losses to simply drive the rotating assembly.
Same theory applies in this case as well.
Though some here claim they can feel a 15 to 25hp increase (Pop Charger, Hot Coil, Headers....)
The Butt-Dyno Lies all the time. My Fairlady FELT a LOT faster with the Webers, Headers, and open exhaust. But it made 90 RWHP. Putting on the stock EFI, etc etc etc and the DYNO said it then produced 147 RWHP.
But it FELT a lot slower.
To repeat: The Butt-Dyno Lies...
