What improvement have you seen by doing this?

I tried it with my Dakota R/T after someone told me they picked up .2 by removing it. My experience when I tried it in the Dakota was....slightly slower time.

The reason I'm one of the quickest/fastest qc's around is because I'm willing to try lotsa things... before me I've seen the fastest guys do this so i decided to try. Our hemi's need to breathe and by doing it the way i do it, it's almost like ram air effect...that opening in my headlight is 8"...can you imagine that ram effect by the time it gets to the 3" throttle body..

the key is that you have to allow the pcm to learn the new higher flow characteristics in order for it to know what to do with it..I reset my pcm as soon as i get to the track so that it knows right away that I'm driving aggressively. It also helps that I have a big and efficient exhaust as well..3" from the header collectors all the way back to muffler, plus when I open the cutouts, it raises the amount of flow that can come through the motor (more in equals more out).

Yea I do this as well, but I tend to drive my truck very hard 24/7. Gives me softer shift points etc. I reset mine maybe 3-4 days in advanced, when getting up in the morning at 4 to head to my warehouse there is a completely empty road that I stop and go, stop and go hard on. What I did to my truck for a couple days before I hit the track, and it was def a difference in shifting confidence!

good, you understand and have the right idea regarding the pcm learning curve..

I pulled my spare,tailgate,and tonneau off on my runs.I didn't mess with the air pressures. My two fastest times were just punching it from idle.The last run I tried getting the rpm up and it was the slowest.I just got on the forum since I posted my times cause the wife bought a 2012 r/t challenger 6speed and I been busy playing with it.
