February 28, 2004Well, I have just read another of these fabulous posts about some backyard mod worth 30+ HP...and how do we measure this phenomenon...by the seat of our F'n pants! I am so tired of reading this garbage about how JimBob got 20 horses by doing this and BillyJoe got 25 by doing this...PLEASE!
If you have a before and after dyno to show these great HP gains, by all means, SHARE IT. But if the only thing you got is the way it feels when you jump in the throttle at 30 mph, then SAY that you enjoy the way it responds when you get into the throttle at 30 mph...Don't give us some Bull HP claim that you got from your hip pocket dyno...
Another major beef of mine...just because you got the headers from JBA that the company says will add 18-20 HP, and an Airaid intake good for 8-15 HP gains, and Flowmaster Cat-back good for 15-20 HP, and your truck comes from the factory rated at 345 HP, does not mean you have a 400 HP truck...TRUST ME! Better yet, if you don't trust me...put it on a dyno...but don't be shocked or pissed when it only dynos at about 295 HP or probably lots less !!!
I feel better now...Thanks!
