rcmdesign I just got off the phone with Brad over at Kansas City Saab (www.kcsaab.com) and he pretty much said the same thing. It is not going to improve power, and probably just end up soaking the catalytic converter with fuel. It would work with a car that naturally runs lean, but this car does not. He said raising the compression rates would work for more power of course, timing advance, open up the breathing and exhaust...

Why does there have to be so many complications I just want a bolt-on power advance

benfica09 yeah, that won't be worth anything. In simple terms, power comes from how much air you can cram into the motor, hence forced induction cars (turbo or supercharged) make more power.....with more air you need more fuel to keep a nice mix for your air-fuel curve.....to rich you loose power, to lean....well thats REAL bad.

anyway, what i'm trying to say is, since you aren't introducing more air into the engine, going to larger injectors & FPR is doing nothing for you. If anything, you'll loose power from runnning too rich, and you'll end up fouling alot of spark plugs.

so don't waste your money.

What are your thoughts?
No.
