You really know nothing about your car, but at least you made it obvious so we could let you know.

I wish I could come up with the next B.S. mod that does nothing but sells and makes a lot of money.

I thought of LED valve stem caps years before they ever came out.

How 'bout an electric in-line blower that helps push exhaust gas out to reduce back pressure? Seems like anything with a propellor blade in a pipe is hot tuna these days.

Or maybe a PCM cooler that would make it process engine control information faster.

Edit: oh, sorry, that's "ECU cooler" for dem maddd jdm dawwwwgzzz.

They're actually very useful and somewhat popular on bicycles for night riding. They make an unmistakeable and very noticeable "spirograph" light trail as you go down the road.

I bought some for my son to put on his ATV recently. He's got one of those 24volt ones made by Razor. He might actually graduate up to a gas powered one soon.
