Well, he has't logged in for over 2 years so I guess not.

He was firmly stuck in the 90's when it came to engine tech, just was absolutely against learning anything new and that progress had been made when it comes to tuning cars.

Some aftermarket ECU's now are so good and easy to use, that any idiot could set up a base map and not break their engine
or, dare I say they could set a road tune and get better results
then just a quick drive to someone reputable with a dyno to finish it off.

Ahh yes, just seen his post.

Also saw a 106 for sale very recently with a GMC supercharger kit fitted to it. Pity the guy selling it knew absolutely nothing about the spec of his car.
