: Just curious...im getting mine installed next week...but all this talk about a select few NA cars (intake, chip and exhaust and that's it!) having roughly the same performance scares me!
Bill, I forgot to mention....Go to the Dinan web site and check out the magazine reviews, particularly Road And Track, and Motor Trend...They review 3 dinan equipped cars. The second one has all the usual stuff, but it also has Cams, which arent too common..With all the mods, the car puts out about 280 something hp. I can assure you that the Supercharged one they tested, which was a 3.0 l unlike the NA models tested which were 3.2 l models, ran circles around the NA models...this sounds like a direct answer to your question....Before I got my SC, I had the Dinan Stage II download, and an ECIS intake...Sure, it was faster than stock, and I liked the mods....But for a real kick in your butt difference, like putting a V8 into your car, nothing will come close to forced induction...Period...Have no fears, you made the right choice when your decided to go that route...Good luck.
