yep...go get it.. just because you don't probably need it. You should get it anyway. thumbup2thumbup2

If you do your research and check which mods you want/need.... you'll probably find a DP is one of the last things a Bonne needs.

The front exhaust manifold really needs to be changed.

I asked the guys at ZZP about the front exhaust manifold being really restricted and getting a powerlog and they said that this will add little to no performance gains and will not change throttle response.

Im really interested in finishing off my exhaust, id like to get headers, but i cant install stuff myself, dont have any of the tools or mindset. But i also dont want to spend over 1000 on headers and installation.

IMO a ported manifold is a waste of time and effort. Because the main restriction is in the neck where most can't port.

The power log is a large open tube.

When you car is cold..and I mean cold. stick your and around the manifold and feel that neck. You'll find that you are looking at what you think is a side..but it'* a flat piece on the side of the manifold.

ZZP had never been what most would call good with answering question or customer service. The Power log though is a good item until it cracks.
