This hose replaces the two OEM hoses and a sound resonator. The purpose of the OEM resonator is to reduce the roar/whoosh noise that can often be associated with air passing through pipe work. By replacing this resonator with a smooth bore hose, the resistance is reduced. Several competitors claim horsepower gains for the installation of this type of hose, but Forge did their own testing which showed these to be marginal so they prefer not to make such claims. They did, however, see change in the torque characteristics with between 10 and 15 ft/lbs improvement on their test car. It's always difficult to quantify gains for a specific product as a lot will depend on other modifications that have been carried out. Typically if the car is running tuned software (free flowing downpipe and exhaust) the results of fitment of this hose will be more dramatic. From a drivers perspective - after fitting this hose on its own - they did not perceive any increase in noise, but there was a noticeable change in the willingness for the engine to accelerate which can be associated with the torque improvement and small gain in horsepower.
