Frustration: No good power to be had after a tune (Short of FI & Internals)???
This is a correct me if I am wrong kind of post. Keep in mind, my goal is to have a heck of a fun DD without going FI. I do not drag race, and about as serious as the car will ever get in that respect is autoX. All I want to do is have a better than stock NA GT. Maybe even frustrate some investment banker friends who are convinced no Mustang could ever hang with their Aston.
Then forget the power upgraded and focus on suspension upgrades. Doesn't matter if you have 1000hp or 100hp if you cant keep the tires from spinning and the car under control.
I see the issue. You don't realize your car makes more power and goes faster than all but the most exotic cars about 15 years ago. You younger guys (assuming you weren't old enough to drive 15 years ago) have no idea how nice it is to have 400+HP from the factory around $30k yet there seems to be no shortage of being unsatisfied about it around here. The first gen Viper made 400 HP and people considered it a monster.
Anyways, I agree you should get boost and be done with it.
