Man, I'd love to. But I figure it would be better if I have scantool readings before and after to quantify the changes and let other people see then so I know if my car'* about to explode And of course so someone can do some math and figure out the HP earnings of this mod.

you can do performance by your butt and maybe some other characteristics (MPG, 0-60, time to go through RPM range at WPT, etc). Wont you need a dyno to figure out before and after HP? Ususally a bored out TB is in the 5-10 range, so thats what I would expect. Take your time and do it properly, its your car so take all the time you need.

Hey, I want it installed more than you do. Waiting for the numbers will be worth it. It gives the mod more backing than just "It feels faster", And personally, If I had to go out and get another TB to do this with, I'd want more than just "It feels faster".

I agree completely. Do it right the first time. And make sure your TPS is set exactly the same with each one.

Okay guys, It'* getting near time to do the first "Before" logs... The acrton only records a few seconds when I have it recording all parameters, Which one do you guys think I should log? I'd like to have it log the entire time through first gear....

That sounds about right. Should cover everything. You'll want to log right after install, and again about 100 miles later.
