I can't agree with that. It does make a difference. Something you notice right off. You have to have good spark plugs and the msd plug wires. I already put them on. I took them off when I had a backyard mechanic, friend of a friend do my timing belt and motor mounts. Then I put them back on a month later. I missed it when it was gone. Even my girlfriend noticed the difference. Not just something I would say for nothing. All the upgrades I have made worked just as advertised. I have heard the chips are bogus. Don't feel the need to take that chance. Keep in mind the coil is installed in combination with a kn cold air intake and magniflow exhaust. Those all work together. One not much without the other

I got a class I Curt hitch for our GT convertible and use it sometimes to pull a popup camper and other times I pull my utility trailer.

The popup has an empty weight of 1860 pounds and we usually jam another few hundred pounds of camp stuff including food in it.

I have hauled a ton of black dirt in the utility trailer a few times with no ill effects.

Of course I haven't really gone that far pulling anything with this buggy. I did haul just under a ton and a half of furniture down to my brother in laws place in Cleveland Tennessee on the utility trailer with my HHR a few years back.

I would have used the PT but we did not own it yet.

Talking Re: Tow with my cruiser

Sweet. That's good news. I can't wait to see what mine can do. I personally think they low ball on the weight recommendation in the book, just to be safe on their part. Not to mention they are not considering any upgrades have been done.
