Lethal believes in it.
my package without it made 490 with just a ported intake before tuning.. after installing it with a ported TB and intake then dialing it in made 510.

snake oil or not in some peoples eyes we have seen gains with it down here.

I just ordered one yesterday. It will be in on Tuesday. For $99 shipped, I figured I might as well give it a shot...

I saw a post the other day where someone gained 2-3rwhp. First time I saw a private party test with one installed.

I tried it on a bone stock car here. It made 2-3 rwhp from about 5600 and up. Auto car

That's good info.

Also disappointing.

3RWHP from something that just adjusts the angle of the TB and cost $99 isn't all that bad at all!

Let me ask this...when you run the same car with no changes 3 times with lets say a 15 minute break inbetween each run (since i dont know the install time for this piece) how much uncertainty do you find? I would bet you see uncertainty that high (but i could be wrong)...and anything measured within the uncertainty range is considered negligible and not real in the engineering field.

That would depend on what the other runs showed. I've been there with Ryan and know that he doesn't just make one pull and call it good. It has to hold up to SEVERAL pulls. If all those pulls consistently show gains in varying amounts, you can assume that it's helping, even with such small numbers.

We can use my thread about his modded intake manifold as an example. It showed 4hp/4tq gain through the entire powerband. It consistently showed gains in every pull we ran. I think we made 6 or so pulls with the intake, with no tuning in between. Some were a little lower, some where higher, but it was consistently higher than baseline. We used a pull that was repeatable and somwhere in the middle of all the pulls, numbers wise.

I ran 3 stock, installed part 3 with wedge, graphs were identical till just before redline.

I installed one, but not sure yet if it makes a difference. I am tuned with LT's w/cats, and a Vararam intake. I'm mostly not sure of if it made a difference, because I hastily put it on almost right after getting it tuned.

Interesting to note, is in the directions, it specifically says that VR equiped camaros that are custom tuned, will need to get retuned due to the MAF scaling. I'm thinking about taking it off and running without it to see if it is affecting my tune, and if it feels any different. All told, I wish I purchased before I got my tune, as now I'm not sure if it is going to work well for me regardless.
