These numbers look good, but it's really hard to quantify unless they incorporate environmental conditions to compare. Obviously this system won't help much at low speeds, but when the ram-air effect begins, you'll see some improvement. You likely can't dyno something like this unless you can put the car in a wind tunnel.
