i noticed a slight increase in performance, mostly at lower engine rpm, just seemed to pick up a bit better, it wont turn it into a top fueller but it is a worthwhile mod espeacially if you plan further mods down the track.

Yep, i'm for the only a slight increase in throttle response. And my dad reckons it has better pickup, but as i have only ever driven my falcon, i dont have much to compare it to. Plus he was hooning to find that out.
