    Firefox is right. OPAS can be downright dangerous plus it slows you down.

    The rideplate mod is basically filling in the bolt holes with JB Weld and smothing it out. Do a search on this forum and you will see posts with pics.

    Ride plate holes filled and intake grate tued as well as checking the reverse bucket clearance. These are basically free mods that are easy to do. Get rid of the OPAS.
    Have impros re-pitch the stock impeller or get a re-pitched Solas from PPG.
    Probably the quickest most non-evasive speed mod in my opinion.
