    ok, gotta ask...

    ok I gotta ask... what happens if you make the hole TOO small, smaller than the new suggested size?

    my biggest complaint, is that even though my car is deafening at WOT, it's very mellow at idle, I want a more powerful idle, like an older car with flows would have.

    any ideas?

    If you go smaller than 9/32" your engine might shut off at idle when Max A/C is on. If this or something similar occurs, enlarge the 9/32" hole to 5/16" until it's acceptable for you.

    I took mine out for a few days and almost had to re-learn how to shift. It made no difference in idle sometimes dropping too low with the A/C on, so it's back in and all is well. Setting the neutral idle to 800 rpm with a Predator fixed the excessive drop when the A/C is on.

    That's like putting a patent on bumper inserts. If you do it, someone can always just magically get the idea, then make it. Not really going to work out.

    I made one and put it in and at Idle it sounds like sucking air through a straw, but as soon as I give it a bit of gas, it goes away. I guess the smaller hole is the one to blame for that. And the hole is 9/32", I think thats what I made it. But other than that it works as advertised. Im still thinking of buying one so I can compare.
