The car was 74bhp before the filter but my mates rollers are Broken so I cant get it checked but when I just put the filter on it was flat as a fart on full throttle way to weak but now it's got bigger jets in it it seems to be a little bit more responsive but not a massive improvement but a tiny bit heavier on fuel. The main reason I put it on was to gain a bit of Room around the engine
