Yes it does. I am completely stock, and put a boost gauge in before hand, and went from 12lbs to 14lbs. I changed the pipes and did the air box mod.

when stock with a guage and intake i notice the same jump in pressure with the pipe install. because they are rubber they expand under pressure and a hard pipe fixes that probem.
