I’ve been looking to buy the Velossa big mouth but are there any “noticeable gains in HP or MPG? Genuinely asking

I think it makes a big difference and here's why:

I have the aFe Tekada Stage 2 intake and the Velossa Big Mouth scoop. The Tekada Stage 2 is open on the top and my hood insulator is getting coated in dust because the air coming in from the Velossa scoop is pressurizing the Tekada Stage 2 intake. The hood insulator did not get "dusted" when I had just the Tekada Stage 2 intake and the factory plate.

Here today we have dyno results from a fellow Kia Forte GT owner. JB4 93 octane Map 2 full bolt on compared to N75 Motorsports 93 tune full bolt on. No water/meth injection and no E mixtures.

OLS, Had a quick question do you have a link or how you did the red Lip on the front of the car. I found a few others but my google fu apparently yields me no results. Thanks RS
I bought the material from Amazon, cleaned the lip, cut the length/width needed and carefully applied with vinyl tools.

It’s because of the speed rating of the tires on the 2.0 cars. I’m not sure how to take it off. I’m sure you could talk to a tuner and get some input

Also, even with less power loss on my car having a manual, the 2.0 gets really slow over like 110. And it starts getting floaty up there too. I wouldn’t take mine past like 115, at least stock. The BC Racing coilovers must be a hell of an improvement if you feel comfortable pushing the top speed envelope

Just wanna shout out Olzsewski for starting this discussion and EVERYBODY else in here. I’m nowhere near as car savvy as y’all. I wish I knew half the stuff y’all be talking about. But nonetheless I love to listen and see the mods y’all make. I even ordered a Takeda Cai & Velossa big mouth as well as the racechip (jb4 and WMI started sounding complicated). I just hope I can install them without any issues.
