It's funny how I know for a fact that the acceleration improved because I actually drive the truck every day, but someone always knows otherwise. Every truck is different.

I had a sluggish response and poor acceleration before installing, and afterwards I noticed a clear increase. Sure, if you say you can't increase either horsepower or acceleration separately, then their must have been an un-noticeable gain of horsepower not worth mentioning.

Sorry about that.
I'm not saying you didn't increase horsepower. For all I know you increased it significantly. All I was saying was that I didn't understand separating acceleration and power. If it helped acceleration it must have helped power.

And my comments on your hot air intake were exactly what they look like on the surface, no hidden digs. Hot air is less dense which hurts power and acceleration, less restrictive intake might help, it's not clear where the balance would be. But if you're getting more power, then that shows where the balance is in your truck.
