LOL this is what I got from a respectable tuner down at Motor Sports

Me: since I am spending RM xxxx on my car what kinda HP 'gain' can I
expect from the 'unit'.

Tuner: nothing !.

Tuner: I know not alot of people like to hear this but for NA cars its
not going to be easy to 'squeeze' out the horse power. Well it also
depends on the current state of tune of the car. What the 'unit' does is
make your ride perform to its fullest potential ie: bring out the most
your cams, ported head, rebore etc has to offer. With time/patience and
proper tuning ofcourse.

Me: errr how much for a turbo conversion ?.

Sorry doods if its a little out of topic, just some incoherent ravings on
my part. Peace out.

Yes, that is true.

A lot of ppl think by replacing their ECU with new and better ones, they
think they would have some instantaneous power upgrade. What morons.

The most you can get from it is, better engine performance.

When I got a piggyback ECU installed, I got better fuel economy and
slighly 10HP power increase.
