    Don't think you will see much HP gain since I have been told the AIR shuts off at WOT. I just had it all tuned out when I had the exhaust and headers put on and they were tuning the car anyways. Denton is good I like it here.

    in the older days the AIR pump ran off of a belt and the engine, so there was some gain, but not with our electric ones unfortunately.

    I found these on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-B...2em118Q2el1247

    Is there anything else I should get or maybe another place to get 'em cheaper?

    fuel filter!! could also change the fluid in the rear; don't forget the friction additive if the lube you buy doesn't have it in it already.
