Hi, what have you done to the car? how many miles? has the regular maintenance been done to the car? recent tune-up? From your post you only added a louder exhaust. nothing to increase the HP/Torque on your car.And the 96-98 V8 car where down about 30 HP compared to your car.96-98 ,230 hp, 99-04, 260 etc. Post more info. and checkout the tech section. Good info to start with.
