Subject: SV: How much more power?


Hi! I would say that you shouldn't tune your car with chip etc. If you check out the 9000 Aero you see that the manual tranny version has 225hp (342Nm of tourqe) and the automatic 200hp. This detuning must have a reason.. But I believe that a sports exhaust cant do any harm.. /Johan 9000 aero '94 "Geoff Waters" <grw888nopsamdnet.att.net> skrev i meddelandet news:3922063B.EDC67BB4nopsamdnet.att.net... > My 96 900 SE 2.0T has the auto transmission.
