Intake manfiifold research

Ok gents and ladies, im in the market to look for an aftermarket manifold. Now i have read plenty on most manifolds, heard all the pros and cons, however i, as well as others, would like to see dyno sheets rather than hear say stories of gains from intake manifolds. However i am all ears to anything anyways since i wanna know what everyone else got gain wise from the manifold they chose, along with the mods with it. Atleast this way i can somewhat get a basis on how much the intake does for the car whether n/a or f/i. If possible id love to see dyno sheets as well showing increases with the manifold. I dont want this to be a slinging competition thread of whose balls are bigger and blah blah blah, just would like some helpful insight from all of you on what your experience and recommendations are to this matter. Thank you all in advanced for any opinions and time, hoping to get alot of info from many that have already done so with the manifold mod.

You will not find much information regarding solid back-to-back comparisons of the stock PI vs. aftermarket intake manifolds. This is in very large part because such comparisons would not support the wild claims made by the aftermarket manifold makers and vendors. Running n/a the PI intake is pretty damned good.

When running f/i something quite counter intuitive happens. The intake's fluid dynamics become less of an issue because the intake tract, from the turbo/supercharger outlet to the intake valves, becomes effectively just a large pressure vessel--a reservoir of compressed air ready to be forced (hence the name) into the cylinder when the valve opens...
