your being fooled into thinking that there is a power incease because it is louder now. It might give you more hp before it warms up,(first 20 min but once it gets heated up, you will start loosing power2-6 accross the power band)

here are some air temps taken off of Brian Youngs home page showing temps increasing as the motor goes faster on a non cold air intake and temps with a custom air box be make for the filter.
88° F ambient temperature
Open K & N K & N with Airbox
20 MPH Cruise 140° 95°
40 MPH Cruise 150° 95°
60 MPH Cruise 160° 100°

also keep in mind that 1% power-loss (thus lost fuel economy) for every 7.2 degree fahrenheit rise in intake air temperature.
