Probably the 3/16 connector mod. Either that or the free factory boost mod (unplugging the hose). Either way, he's ripping someone off.

It's probably a xeroxed sheet of instructions that describes the 3/16" mod

It's the secret and elusive "horsepower governor" removal instruction sheet! (The STi comes stock with this removed, which is why it has more HP)

LMAO, nah, this guy is selling the free hose removal mod.

How do I know this? Because I asked him. I spoke to him online and he told me what to do for free. He just sends you instructions.

i think its funny that he say's 'it' eveywhere never nameing what 'it' is.. i don't think he's going to fool anyone.. and if he does.. they deserve to hand over there money (tax for being gullible)

i've never seen anything about these 'free' mods before.. seems to be that running a higher boost would require some ECU adjustment, and better than 92-93 gas to avoid detonation..

Look at all his negative feedback: http://cgi2.ebay.com/ebaymotors/aw-c...et23%40aol.com

You'd have to be crazy to order something from him.

i figured it was the pulled hose or the 3/16 mod. Just making sure I didn't miss a recent "cheap mod" thread.
