Show me some numbers on about the e-ram. Quarter times, hp curves whatever.

0-60 .3 sec average gain (g-tech). Haven't gone to the dyno. Haven't gone to the track yet for 1/4 mile testing.

It's a gain you can definately feel.

Mods can have a placebo effect to them. Don't believe me? I have a set of yellow type-r stickers that add 20 hp that I will sell you.

I mentioned in another post somewhere that I have a dashboard hula doll in my car that adds 1,000 hp. :p

.3 sec gain in 0-60, there were no other mods done, roughly same amount of fuel, weather condition kind of the same?

Cool. I don't know much about 0-60 runs, but sounds good I guess.

I have other mods done. B&M shifplus (modified by me though) Jacobs ignition. I didn't have my cat back exhaust on yet but I do now.

Weather was cool around 50 degrees, low humidity, calm, sunny day, under a dome of high pressure. I'm at fairly low altitude- around 800-850ft.

Runs all done one right after the other.

A .3 gain is alright. It's nothing compared to a turbo/supercharger. It's about the same as upgrading to a better cam or adding headers.

How did you get the electric blower to fit? Did you use a smaller cone than I have? 'cause mine is .5" from the fender as-is.

Yes, I did use a smaller cone. It rests about 1-2 inches from the fender. I have the blower out now. I had taken it off for the winter. I'm going to design a mount for the on/off switch and the blower itself and am going to see if a friend can make them for me. It was all kind of "gettoed" on there before and I wanted to make it look better. I was laid off before I could make all this myself. ???
