WOW! I love it!
Bring up my gas consumption from 26 to 30 mile/gallon!
Starts up like a flash and smooths out the engine on any rpm. Ultra smooth and quick snap throttle response. This little thing rocks! Plus the lights are absolutely amazing to see in the engine bay. The engine runs so smooth like a v6.
