Stock spikes 13 then drops to 11. Add Stage 1 and spikes 15 then drops to 13. Yes you can get more with a boost controller, stiffer wga, etc. but don't go there without a boost gauge, wideband and a lot of research! Go to PTCrew and start learning!

So far, ive done the basics : remove the white cone in your air box, installed the AMX hard pipes, boost and oil pressure gauges, and installed a K&N Filter.

See this : AMX Hard pipes installed...

Im getting 14 to 15lbs now, and all I did was install the pipes
