Is this a computer upgrade? Are you taking the part manufacturers -claim- or have you dyno'd the change before AND after? Or, better yet, backed up their claims with before and after runs at the track? In my experience, aftermarket performance part manufacturers boost power claims. On my car, an aftermarket exhaust is supposedly worth 30hp... right. Same thing with a computer upgrade and cold air intake. Total for all three is about 20hp... dyno verified. Also, verified by several runs at the drag strip. I am definately interested in enhancing the performance of any 900 that I get, but I don't want the same advertising BS that I see everywhere else. -------------------------------------------------- Wayne Edelen - 1996 Formula M6 - Purple / Graphite Airfoil, Borla, Cold Air, Eibachs, GM/Motive 4.10s HPP+/160', Hurst, MAC 3pt STB, PFCM, SFC, yadda...
