OK, I'll buy the "insurance" concept ... I was simply asking if anyone had any data to substantiate anything more than a sub percent marginal effectiveness increase ...

While I haven't done any research on aftermarket air filter systems, I have heard Pat Goss of Goss' Garage (syndicated radio talk show) note repeatedly that improved flow filters offer a very slight improvement (assuming all else is constant) ONLY at full throttle positions - he contends that the DO NOTHING at any other throttle position. Claims he has tested the ones that the manufacturers would provide to him.
