    GMHTP magazine tested it and rated it at like 1.5 hp. Don't know if thats at the flywheel or rear wheels. I got one cause it's only $30 from Summit (SLP Brand) and I'm gonna put it on my track car cause hey, why not... every little helps in a race. I had an extra $30 to spend so I went ahead and spent it on the car.

    True every little thing counts. I use to have them in my 94 Trans Am and Formula before I sold my two LT1's. Good small mod for the price.
