ok, when i got my car it had the conversion done to it.. my local shop had done all of hte work and all was kewl.. BUT, the max gain they got was 8 hp and the car ran real bad when it was hot out side.. i MEAN it when i say real bad the idle was shit.. it would die over and over again in the hot weather.. espically in the trafic.. i took it off and man the car ran so much better.. also another contributer was the open element filter that was there i also removed it and it also was the main contributor the that AWSOME?? hp gain.. i would be real carefull about the proclaimed gains of this mod.. the weather and hummidity have SO much to do with this system..
therefore if you drive in trafic in hot weather and go real slow than i would not do it.. P.S. hte dyno sheets are easly manilpated do to the many factors that can cause a minor change.. like the dyno chart you are probally talking about if you raed the SMALL text at the botem it says the other changes were made on the exhaust and intake.. so dont be misslead..
