I don't have access to a dyno, but I would take my car to the track
and get a ballpark number by way of mph.  If the product didn't
perform as advertised I would warn my friends about it.  BUT, since
I don't have a lot of extra cash, I probably would never buy it in
the first place unless I know someone who had bought it, and had
quantified the improvement that it made for him.  That way I could
figure out the price/performance ratio and see if it was worthwhile.

Well, that's the problem in a nutshell.  We want performance products
for our motors, but almost all of what's been available so far has
turned out to be snake oil.  We'd like to do business on nothing
but trust, but we've been burned too many times to do that any more.
Honest vendors in this market may have to prove their products a
little more than normal due to the dishonest vendors that have come

I haven't seen anything proven either way so far, just lots of
interesting questions.

The way I understood it, he said it would not work with the stock
hardware, and no one has said anything to prove that wrong.  Apparently,
(if your kit works as advertised) you've replaced a piece of the stock
hardware with a custom piece that creates the necessary clearance.
What would have been so hard about just saying so to begin with, if
that's the case?
