ok, this is really good, now we can see there is a 25whp delta from stock to modded.

thank you for the clarification and the confirmation that the dyno was generous in the numbers produced.

however, the delta is very real and very healthy. very nice increase.
not quite. it would be an 11% increase. on a different dyno that reads lower, it wouldn't have a 25hp increase.

My car is just a DD...never track..so over 100 is kinda mute
for me anyway....would love to increase 0-100.

Any resource areas to read more about the gearing options?

This is the difference gears make


The test were done within 24 hours. On the same road with the same cars. The only thing that changed was the gears on my s2k

From one N/A enthusiast to another, let me be the brutally honest one. Get ready to open that wallet VERY wide to pull some good N/A power out of your car. Yes, start with the bolt ons and get a good EMS and tuner to make the most out of the mods. The honest truth is. if you want any real N/A power from this engine, you are going to have to start thinking about internals. I am currently having my engine built as we speak with a high compression 2.4L stroker kit along with a fully built head and ITB's. I'm sure it will be fun BUT IT WAS NOT CHEAP!!!
