I know alot of you guys are looking to get one of these, but some of the post i have read that poeple were only getting 2hp. Is it really worth the price for the little gain or bigger gains realized and documented that i overlooked?

the biggest reason more people want these isn't because of horsepower increase. From what I've heard, it increases throttle responsiveness considerably and makes that section of low power at the low end of the RPMs (our dead spot, as its known here) more responsive. Again, this is all what I've read and heard because I have an LFX too and am still waiting to try

This product has never shown to provide big peak gains...I think the test I saw was around 4 or 5 HP. Its not about peak gains with this product....in fact many of the best things currently out there for the V6 don't provide much in the way of peak gains.

You many not notice any real change while at speed (in my opinion...I have the RX ported TB).

What I did notice is more response and get up from a take off or low rpms....good enough for me to warrant a $150 purchase.

I'm right out of Tampa as well. I sent an email offering up my Camaro.

IneedAZ you offered up first so by all means go for it. Unless you can't do it or something happens I'll still offer on one of my days off. I figured a back up car would have been nice as well just in case since I'm currently stock.

If you don't do frequent stops it is possible to do it in under 8 hours, no problem.

Were app30-60 days from shipping now. The testing was a huge success with greater gains than we expected to see and that is before the final CNC pattern cuts by VMax. You can preorder to reserve a spot in the first batch now.....hopefully the tst subject will be posting up his experiance.
