Question Of Curiousity

Just had a quick question for anyone that might have some imput. I just bout a 2006 SE ZX4 with the SAP. It has the 2.0L and i was curious if i were to take it in for a dyno and tune, what kind of HP and WTQ increase would i see, if any? It is still stock aside for the K and N CAI I have ordered. Thanks

without tuning software, you won't get anything out of a dyno session other seeing exactly what HP and TQ you're getting. U would need a diablo or SCT software kit, and then someone who actually knows these cars and how to use the kit.

A tune isnt going to add a ton of HP. Its just going to "free" your car of some of the restrictions.

yes it would move the governor, and u have a dura. should be a d20 aka 2.0duratec. post a pic and we can make sure thats what it is. and if all u want is a tune to move the govenor talk to tom or focus sport and just get a mail order tune. it will do the trick for now until you get some more mods under the hood no real need for the dyno part.
