I will agree that expecting the gains that some companies advertise just by slapping on their filter is retarded. The stock intake system would have to be pretty poorly designed to be holding back 10hp. Not only that, but WOT maps are usually fixed maps anyway, so unless the car happened to be running too rich to begin with, without re-tuning the fuel map any extra air isn't going to make extra power without extra fuel. It's the part throttle areas where gains that don't show up on the dyno might be noticed.
Ya that makes sense .. someone should through this into a civic forum

I think 90% dont do any re-tuning to the fuel maps / ecu
