+30 HP????? Somehow, I doubt it. Even buying and installing the "Big 3" (Air kit, pipes, plug and play mix controller) nets less than 10 HP for the huge cost. I haven't tried one, but I can't imagine 25 bucks getting you 30 HP.

If I'm wrong, I'm sure someone will point it out, but I won't hold my breath.

Not a bad idea. Cheaper upgrade than you can get anywhere. I sent 2 emails to past buyers to see if it worked. If so, I bet they will sell out, just from this site.

I haven't seen anyone use them yet. They have been out for a long time so if they were good everyone would have them by now.

The key thing is that it says "up to 30+ hp" and above that it says "Here are a few of the benefits you may experience" Yeah maybe in a car or a ZX-14 you might get that much of an increase. Most performance upgrades say they will give you a percentage.

If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Personally, I wouldn't waste the money on it.

Real gun control is having the ability to hit your target.

Not so sure about that product. 30+ gain for $25...I doubt it. Just go with a reputable EFI fuel management system, pipes and air kit. Just my .02 cents....
