Re: [DML] Re: Bolt On Performance.

(hands clapping loudly)


This is what needs to be done. However I think most people will live  
by John's " Just Buy It", "Return it if you dont like it" slogans.

If I had access to a Dyno I would do it.

Maybe we should all do what John says, we all should buy his  
performance tune-up kit, try it and then send it back if we dont see  
a difference. However in order for this to work we all have to give  
our cars a fresh stock tune-up first and then install his Performance  

I have a feeling John will end up having a big sale on used  
Performance parts.
