i have to disagree with u Bob on this one, where i am, tuning shops do ECU remaps for around 600$ and give u an additional 15hp (dyno test seen)
if u have installed aftermarket parts expect the gain to increase even more
ECU remaps vary based on the company, i can't remember which company had that software, but i'm sure to have that remap once i get CAI and headers.
one thing though, will an ECU remap overwrite the Shark Injector software?
