Clean the line from the manifold to the ALDA and you might get another 15hp. Run some Diesel Purge for another 15hp. If rice math holds... Just kidding. But seriously, keeping the line from the manifold to the ALDA is worth the simple effort and cleaning the injection system either periodically with Diesel Purge or with every tankful is usually worth the cost.

Don't forget to install a spoiler across the trunk lid

for maximum 'rice' factor.

Other valuable speed and power enhancing tips can be found here: http://www.riceboypage.com/

A huge exhaust pipe and muffle would be good for a few horsepower and or course you can always add an intercooler . If you lower it 3 inches that will add like 30hp, and if you put wheels that stick out 3 inches that will add like 90hp

I agree with Sixto:

On two of my 300's the banjo bolt at the back of the manifold was so crapped up that a mere cleaning matched all other adjustments. The difference in speed and acceleration was unbelievable.

F Johns,

If you use the Search feature, you'll learn more than you ever wanted to know about the ALDA (which adds fuel as boost rises) and the banjo bolt (which plugs with soot & kills prerformance). On a side note, you may want to set up a signature in your user control panel that includes your name, and the year & model of your car. Saves lots of questions when you post...
