I agree that any changes are cylinder distribution related.
Rabamaro's dyno sheets from Lethal Racing showed that as well.

Higgs I wasn't mad just being polarizing.

Again drove in heavy traffic, a little wot action merging onto the highway. I still think it helps torque down low, even as low as 1500. L99'ers, when you go to pass folks and give your car light gas, does it downshift? Mine is downshifting less. That's telling me that in the low to mid-range, I have more power.

I'll shoot for an extra mph, but I plan to raise my shift points too.

I'm still skeptical on this. Who doesn't love some extra TQ down low, but this just seems too good to be true. Then again, I haven't really read any bad reviews. I would just like to see some irrefutable data.

Good Freakin Grief. It is a no risk item. Try it for yourself and give us your irrefutable data.

Just a heads up. You are going to look at this thing and think no way can this do anything at all, postive or negative. Other than the tilt, it almost completely disappears behind the TB. I almost want to flip it upside down to see if it kills some tq, since I have more than I need already.

That guy Rhino something milled his TB to adjust the angle, like y'all are saying, maybe it's helping the distribution.

Mine:

Everybody keeps talking about this, but nobody has been able to show an actual increase in anything other than their butt Dyno.

My butt Dyno was numb to the wedge as I posted earlier.

But I went to the track tonight and finally got into the 12s. The funny part though is every time I have ever been to the track (three times so far) I have had the wedge. Maybe it has helped me, a real track newbie who stages with his back wheels at times, run respectable even though I still cannot drive.

With your mods you shouldn't have a problem breaking into the 12's without the wedge
