    You might try getting a hold of Frost, or Orion. They maybe able to help you.

    yep. Orion is a mod. Frost has a web site link in the upper right hand corner of the page.

    Frost does mail order tunes for $125. What mods do you have done or are you completely stock? Usually what will happen is your air fuel ratio will get leaned out a little to 12.8-13.0 :1 which will give you more power and then you will get a few more degrees of timing. Frost will be able to tell you more as to what gains you'd see on a dynoe but I would guess ~20HP. You would see a difference in throttle response and the difference will be noticable. Do you have an auto or manual? On auto's a lot can be done with the shift settings that will also be a huge noticable improvement.
    Do you have plans for mods in the near future and if so what are they? I'm going to move this to the tuning section and Frost will definitely see it and give you a better response as to what he can do for you.
