Performance Related Questions

How much horsepower should I expect?
If your engine is 100% stock, you should expect to see an increase of 25-35 horsepower using our product. If you have modifications such as an air intake system, exhaust upgrades, throttle body upgrades, etc, you could gain up to 75 horsepower.  

How much gas will I save?
With regular driving, or cruise control, you should expect an increase of 2-3 miles per gallon, if you engine is 100% stock. If you’ve upgraded your intake and exhaust system, then you should expect to see an increase of 3-5 miles per gallon. Note: In order to save gas, you need to drive normally. If you’re a “spirited” or “aggressive” driver, you may not experience any mpg increase at all. There are currently no products that allow you to be “heavy” on the throttle and save gas. It’s simply not possible.
