    what do you have done so far ... you will not notice much if any gain from the TB if you dont have quite a bit done already

    I bet with those hood pins and those motor mods you are pushing a good 500+ to the wheels huh?

    Anyways.. A TB wont do you shit for good. Go buy a ZEX kit and spray till you fry that riced out sol.

    You dont need a fuel regulator b/c you dont have shit done. Your muffler prolly took power from you. HP header? Never heard of em, sure it sucks power away also. But hey, you have Carbon fiber Tezza's.. those must add that power back huh?

    A Del Sol is a semi-heavy car as is.. if you wanna make power, take all that cheap, horsepower robbing shit off and start adding name brand, good parts on there.

    actually the header did add power and the hood pins are on it because the hood gets wobbly at 65 on the highway and i just got the header until i have the money to get a greddy turbo kit for it
