    If they handed you the ribbon I'm sure it was done...they are easily removed once the throttle body & manifold are off. You should be able to tell for sure by a noticeable improvement in throttle response & acceleration.

    yeah you will be able to tell....noticable improvement with that part...i think it is the best mod for the money....by far!

    Tell us exactly what is on the ski now. If all you can turn is 7100 RPM sounds like you need something before a S/C Wheel. Way before.
    I have a C3-11 with a 13/25 and hit the rev limited no problem. Already working on a 13/26 and beyond in my setup.

    +1. You have too much prop if you only did the intake mod.

    yeah...ur way overpropped for that stock SC wheel....get a C-1 wheel and ull be right on with that 13/24 prop.....

    If u get a C3....get ready to repitch ur prop and buy a ECU or Powershot fuel tuner (to get around boost limiter)....

    Price seems about right especially if that is including the $35 [email protected] $100/hr = 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 hrs. It took me about 3 hrs, some bloody nuckles, lots of cursing & plenty of cigarette breaks to do mine.

    In the future, you'll want to tune your prop to your mods...not the other way around. After you install horsepower upgrades see what your rpm's are & tune your pitch from there.
