id suspect the complete programing would be different on ecm and senders for spark advance curve,fuel trim ,knock ect. requiring more than an after market supercharger or turbo,though either would do more harm than good,blast it with nitrous if you want power from this anemic for a while


Yeah, seeing as you have no clue what you're talking about or doing, I'll just say that theres much more to boosting a turd than what you're asking about.
