Mine didn't get so much peak power but more midrange torque and general drivability. Power went from 170rwkw to 185rwkw but you could really feel the extra midrange clout. It's not so noticable at the top end. It's a good modification though.

O.K. It'll add around 50kw to an XR6 Turbo (as stated). Not an N/A 6 mate...

FNP, that's quite a good RWK increase, especially since you have said that you haven't really noticed top end increase...

If you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost and what other mods have you got?

Have you put her down the quarter?

Yes.

Don't worry about peak power figures. The best thing you'll notice is the increase in delivery across the whole range.

Its good to get your car "flash tuned" but there's other mods you should do before hand eg exhaust, intake, cams maybe (although these are pricey for B series cars). Also, get a custom tune for best results (which will cost more) and do your research to find a good tuner.
