it is kinda of ridiculous that there is zero performance data to date...a little suspect.

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.
