You will only notice a slight improvment. But you can tune that for much better performance. What year is your car?

Each of us could argue that our year is the best year, but let'* agree that Bonnie'* are cool.

To tune a 93 the best route to go would be Ryan at GM Tuners. Hang tight..my trusty sidekick Todd will +1 his post count soon with the link for you.
