: : Their 355hp stage II rating was for their powerdyne s/c and the vortex charger (which they are installing) is more efficient. The ERT and RMS units powerdyne or vortex? I'm not certian. 350hp or 375hp I'll be happy in either case.
: for OBDII cars! Dont let these comments dissuade you...There are alot of Dinan bashers out there because they dont like their prices. But, for what you get, ie, best warranty in the business, convenient service (I have 3 Dinan/BMW dealers within 30 mins), excellent quality, etc, they cant be beat. And, with JC's blessing, who normally is no big fan of what is his chief competitor, you can rest assured that you are getting the best currently available. Their Vortech kits are well thought out, last a long time, and are trouble free. BTW, perhaps the 375 hp comes from the fact that, besides the 354 rating for the normal stage II with Exhaust, you also are getting the TB! I doubt the TB is woth 20 hp, but I can tell you whether its 354 or 374, just put it in second and floor it....YOu've never seen fishtailing til you've seen that! You'll have a ball. Just build up your tires budget.
