Default my y8 is no faster than stock!!!

Ok so I drove a stock 98' EX today from a dealership. I have a 00 EX with an I/H/E and the stock 98' was hardley any slower....WTF? that makes me mad. Anyone have any clue why this would be? Please help...My dyno numbers were 114whp...does that sound right with just i/h/e? Thanks

that sounds about right for IHE. IHE wont do TOO much on a stock engine...but build it up and put a turbo on and it will smoke the same car without the IHE (well...just the E if you do the turbo)

I think it depends how many miles are on your car, and how hard it's been beaten on, (if you're not the first owner) Also, I think there may be a bit of a weight difference but not positive.

i agree, your not going to get that much of a power difference with i/h/e that your going to feel a big difference between your car and another..but your on your way

perhaps your ride needs a tune up, some new plugs and plug wires may make it feel quicker
