I may spring for this kit, although I'm not sure how much it will help over what I've already done. I was very surprised at the difference I've seen by just installing a K&N filter, removing the resonator, and removing the air dam in front of the intake ports. If I 'launched' the car (auto gearbox, brake held firmly, giving it plenty of throttle holds rpms at 2800) before doing all this I could chirp the tires at I'm getting wheel spin all through first gear. And that's with only some redneck mods and a new filter.

Oh, and I also opened up the spark plug gaps. Still stock plugs, I think I ended up at .055". Butt dyno says all that made a pretty decent difference...wish I could throw it on a real dyno and see.
