The data at the edge of the graph is not a valid comparison... that's the roll-on ramp up in speed. If that's what you're using to make your claim, you're cherry picking to support your argument, and that dog won't hunt. Move only a couple of hundred rpm up the ladder and suddenly what I said before about 3-4% gains fits across the entire model (except for that one spot right near the end where the gains jump high again, also as I mentioned).
You're free to believe as you wish, but I've been tuning and racing cars entirely too long to know what's bunk and what's real. AEM does not make huge gains, but it does make measurable (and consistent) ones. Those gains are not measurable on a butt dyno, but on a real dyno they are. Combine those small gains with those from a quality header, a quality exhaust, etc. and it DOES become measurable on the butt dyno, and VERY noticeable on a real dyno.
Since these charts are not from a Ridgeline, no one here can say exactly how well the AEM intake does, so arguing about it before a chart comes out is silliness. But to discount AEM out of hand when their reputation for 20+ years has been consistent in netting 3-5% hp/tq gains over the majority of the rpm band is also equally silly (IMHO).
