My first dyno run...
was about 60 degrees out. The first run for my car was done with
a very dirty K&N drop in filter. The second run was done with
the filter removed. Removing the filter (even though it was completely
dirty) only gained 1/2 HP and 1/2 Torque.

My Second Dyno Run
RPW 4 to 1 headers, high-flow catalitic converter, and full 2.25"
(plus the stuff on the first dyno run)
got my car weighed a while ago, here are the results. This shows the
weight of the car on each of the tires plus the total weight and cross
dragracing, you want a good portion of the weight over the front tires
(on front wheel drive cars.) For Autocross racing (cornering, braking,
and accerating) you want to get the cross weights the same. Plus you
want the front to back weight distribution to be closer to 50%/50%.
