    Waste, you will see no gains with this you will just gain a piece of mind thinking you could have.

    $150 is not bad at all considering that you can get a S3 P&P TB for the same amount. Everyone knows BBK very few know about S3 TB. I got one (S3) and didn't notice any big changes except a little quicker throttle response time over stock. Then again you need a dyno to be looking for those little gains Orion turned me on to them and have been very happy with it because I didn't spend $380 on a TB that does the same thing as a BBK. However if I came across a BBK for $150 I would have probably gotten it at the time just because I knew the name. just look it over real good and make sure the springs are good. Weak spring = shitty response
