Search!

There are numerous threads on here with the same question and the same response:

Only good for mounting a NOS jet in so you don't have to drill the TB or intake manifold.

No gains from it. You get a little whistle noise. I also coulda swore I saw someone post a small number less than one with the HP you lose from it. Like finch said, only get it for NOS.

And then, for nitrous, bore out the threads inside it to reduce its restriction (make it smooth).
