well I think you get what you pay for and I would recommend the viper, before some of the other mods it went on a rolling road with just the viper and a de-cat pipe on and got 142bhp, I'm now running kent cams and a superchip and was registered at 186bhp on superchips own rolling road in Buckingham, when I find someone with a scanner I'm going to upload the graph to prove it

mate you now got between 163 and 186bhp just with superchip, viper and exhaust? might have to get mine rolling road tested then, mines a 95 ecotec, 65000 miles, with full stainless exhaust and de-cat pipe, viper and superchip.
