A blue-tooth OBD reader has no way of telling Horsepower Numbers, nor any way of even so much as estimating. I bet you confused HP with water temperature or something.

A SPI engine, even with an intake and exhaust has a hard time breaking 100whp.

I also have a pretty hard time believing this. Mostly because you mentioned "performance chip" which is about as good as a sticker on the rear window in terms of power-gains. A cat-back and a CAI still wont net you the same power as a base zetec, and i can guarantee you from experience that a base zetec cant break the 8.0 0-60 barrier. It takes a good driver on a good day to hit 7.0 0-60 in a SVT, and he is making easily 50whp over you.

Prove me wrong though, if you have dyno numbers or a drag strip receipt, ill take it all back.

Until then, this thread is mostly BSing and i heavy suspect failed trolling.
