    $60-$70 for smoother acceleration and a few HP increase to me isnt really a debate. Just make sure it isnt ported to far, check the feedbacks.

    I have seen the same product on ebay. They have always seemed to have good feedback. They claim 10-15 hp increase on stock ls1s and .2 off 1/4 mile times is this believeable?
