Wouldn't the throttle response be the only difference?

It does, he must feel like it's climbing faster. I mean my car feels way different with the TB on there compared to the old one and then compare that to the unported stock one. It's all in how it feels.

it feels a lot better. once the initial SVT bog passes, it just feels amazing. i definitely hit my personal shift points faster than i did before, and i'm not just driving differently. my typical launch style with no altering.

I think something is wrong with my car. When i turn it off the gas and temp gauge are supposed to go all the way down and stay down but it goes down when i turn the car off but then will go back up in a second as if i jist turned the car back on. Have no clue why but it has never done it before. Any ideas?
