Thanks- great advice. So by the "whole package" you mean the Rescue Kit and the ECM? Any negative issues with the ECM? Do they give you any hassle over the warranty with it? I ask only because the Viggen is not my "toy" but my actual car, and though I would love to maximize performance, I cannot do so at the expense of reliability, etc. Under these circumstances, would you still recommend the package? Thanks so much for the feedback. It's extremely helpful! "rubber grommet" <> wrote in message news:<M3k98.20195$>... > I found my Viggen boring after the Rescue was installed.
