But if you are doing this on your bone stock TBSS there is absolutely no point. You'd notice the gain in accelleration about as much as you sticking your head out the window and blowing backwards.
THANK YOU... I thought I was the only one here. I didnt want to be a jackass again and offend anyone by calling him out on that one. Somethings I will just never understand...

I would bet money that if you connect a scanner and take it for a drive, you would see that you are shifting at a higher RPM than the tach says... I don't know why you have a 'dent' in your MAF. I wouldnt worry about it too much unless you start going crazy with mods.... (not intake/exhaust/tune) more like SC/Turbo or Nitrous.
