Beauty?  You are beer-goggling, dude.

Calling that amazing technology is
like paying to get on first, while
calling it a home run.

How far will cutting a $1000 check
get you at the local speed shop?
Seems to me they could spend half
an hour to tweak the ECU and still
have beaucoup bucks* to spare for
some further work.


* I'm guessing a universal burner
won't set them back more than $100
to $150/mo.

Let's say the kit is actually worth
the 16% horsepower boost; that works
out to about 20$/hp.

Changing the dc offset on the timing
curve may be only worth a 6% boost,
but one used to be able to make that
mod with a fifty-cent socket wrench,
which, in this application, would be
about 3 cents/hp.
