Stock. read that. It's for a 2000, but it will still apply.Basically, you're looking at almost $1400 for a measly and barely noticeable 11 horsepower. And that's only at a certain rpm. The rest of the power band? Basically no gain in the slightest. 7.8 torque? Again, worthless. If you got a tune up, with new sparkplugs, you could see the same gain.Save your money. But if you don't want my advice, just go look at the dyno results. And ignore the peak numbers. Look at the whole graph. They actually LOST power at certain rpm. Which means, slower acceleration.And definitely ignore where it says "substantial gain in power". 6-7 horsepower here and there, is not substantial. It's pathetic.If you're spending more than around $50 per horsepower, you're pissing your money away. And that's the bottom line.
