The kit from Modern does offer several options for compression so in effect you might get a little fresher than stock, but for the money it's probably impractical unless there is something seriously wrong with your engine.

I figured it out, just had to pop off the covers on the back of the headlight and then you have to remove the bulbs that come stock on them. The stock bulbs are crap, but once I got the 70 watt bulbs in it they look much better. I just don't like the "yellow" look of the 55s. I realized too that the...

A friend of mine and I were talking about that the other day, I think the problem was once you got the ECU done, if you added a new mod, it had to be totally re-flashed and this would need to be done everytime for anything that you added to the car performance wise.
