I agree and all that is hearsay, which I try to avoid repeating.

Moosestang. You need to adjust your dashpot setting to change your coast rpm.

If you just bolt on that tb, you won't gain anything really.

I also adjusted my MaF transfer table and i believe I added 3% to 5% across the board.


But if your cfm of you air filter and intake tube is too small, there won't be enough air to change the afr.

Adding a larger tb on a supercharged car can increase the boost, that's where the power increase comes from
