For your year car its not as bad. But you think you got power out of just bolting it on, get some EM and then you will notice even more gain. Search around in the Engine Management forum. THe 2 most popular are the Cobb AP (roughly $695) or Opensource (requires a cable, laptop, and downloading some software). Read about them, see which fits your needs and budget and then go from there.

You can get the old version used for like 200 some odd dollars. Only difference is the new one is alittle more fancy, and it extracts your stock map and puts it on the ap so if you ever want to revert back to factory you can. The old version you can't do that.

Cobb isnt supporting the old model, or they are phasing it out. You could also check into opensource, you just a cable, a laptop and to download some software. There are several members who use it and it has been discussed here thoroughly.

I suggest getting the Cobb AP. the update they put out a few months back. makes it so much more useful. Minor timing adjustments, idle adjustment, data logging, etc......
