I saw/read somewhere else about dyno's needing a lot of air going in to have it actually comparable to real-life driving. That fan must be huge and the video doesnt seem to have any wind blowing thru. Im not advocating that air filters actually make a difference but I mean at least have a real dyno test with real-ish amounts of air.

I'm a sucker for mods, I'm sure intake & tune will make a increase against just a tune.
I have DCI on my Z and I'm happy to trade minimal power loss (assumption based on this video) with a gain in sound.
Love that turbo spool.
