I hear that the benefits are negligable, it is a band-aid fix and may give you a few ponies here and there but nothing substancial...somebody else has doen it I believe it was Captain-orange....but I could be wrong....

I installed one a week ago, and a friend tuned it for me. I have the 3.0 Ranger Maf that gave me 10 whp dyno tested so I bought to optimize the air fuel ratio. It's a good tool if you get someone that is familiar with it and if you have access to a Dyno.

I'll be going to the Dyno next week so I'll let you guys know how do I do.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Boy you better spend some time on the dyno tuning, because your numbers seem kinda low for the mods you have. i made 125 hp and 130 torque with just AEM CAI, fc race header, vibrant catback and NO tuning.

Those numbers are before the Apex'i, the FS Flex pipe and the Magnflow exhaust. I was loosing a lot of power with my custom exhaust it has bents everywhere.

I'm also reburning my chip in a week or so will see what happen.
