Re: [DML] Re: Bolt On Performance.

Yeah if I had original wore out parts on my car and I installed all  
of the stuff that was mentioned I would also have improved results.  
However if I installed stock specification new parts I would also  
have improved results over my old stuff.

To prove gains you have to take a test stock car, get a dyno baseline  
and then start adding your goodies, not remove wore out parts and put  
performance parts and say it runs and performs better because  
naturally it will when the worn out parts are removed.

Fact is I got a huge big performance noticeable gain installing new  
Plugs, Wires, cap and rotor back in 2003. However my Cap and Rotor  
were burnt to hell, my wires were original and my Plugs were way out  
of gap. Fact is that I would have noticed the same results with  
performance parts too after removing my old junk. That is no baseline  
to claim performance.

Yes when I wash and detail my car is does seem faster, it is all in  
the mind by cleaning and replacing makes things better.

Claims are one thing, Dyno numbers prove claims.
