Yes he was referring to the performance chips that advertise 50hp by splicing into your MAF wiring(or other means).

My old coupe had plenty of power. I raced a chevy colbalt ss supercharger and my NA focus kept up for prolly about half mile or so till we stopped. the 20 or so hp gain is well worth the money spent, I am going to build my current '09 to the way my coupe was and I cant wait
The lightest '08-'11s are right under 2600lbs.

jonnmandy Now it makes sense. Thanks guys. Glad I already got one. I think it was my 1st mod.

replica81 I did the Steeda. It does move the linkage higher on the shifter. So much that the trim that holds the shift boot needs to be trimmed to clear the shift linkage.

So yeah. The throws are a bit shorter.

Correct...the linkage moves up and the throw is shortened...$5

Catback (Trubendz or something similar): 350 shipped
Tuner (FSW or Tom): 400ish
dogbone inserts (ebay): 30
steeda short throw (ebay): 120 shipped

$1250 all in all. you can probably do better if you scout for used stuff on here and FJ.
DIY Short Throw is $5 if you want to save a few more bucks!
