I'm having an issue with setting up my vdyno properly, I can feel a difference with OVtune (in progress) but want to check some actual numbers from the runs I got. I know they won't be 100% but I would like to see.
Problem is the results are all over the chart with the graph doing all kinds of...
Firstly, I have an AEM high flow filter that I would recommend to everyone. It's miles ahead of the K&N oiled filters of the 90s.
Second, if you remove the top portion of the filter box, first from the throttle body and then from the lower portion where the filter rests, then remove the air...

I got a sample bottle from Mother's from our recent car meet, they were one of the vendors out there and I decided to give it a try and here are the results. Keep in mind a very light polish was done to it about 2-3 weeks ago.
First couple of things I noticed about it:

I'm tired of seeing all the infotainment firmware update threads on this sub forum :)
So, I'd like to hear what others have attempted (successfully or not) on their 3's wrt taming the road noise.
