Hi,
I have a 2001 and just installed a Dragon TC today, not sure how much of a difference it made, I feel a difference but doesn't seem like a 1/2 sec. Maybe its cause my other car is 300 hp at 2200lbs, can you give me your experience with your TC.
Thanks

TC's do not increase HP, in fact you loose hp with a TC install (on a dyno that is). But the launch with a TC, you will gain so much that it can easily shave half a second from your ET.

I know what it does and how it works just wanted to know if anyone else put one on, and what their experience was.

Ok so the question....
have you been to the track and tested this out?
The butt dyno has been known to be as accurate as a $20 ho telling you, you are the only man for her.

I was looking at picking up one of these not too long ago but have been putting it off because of the $800+ price tag. Do you feel a difference when you pound the gas off of a red light? I would look more seriously at one of these if i saw someone with one

User "revhard" has one. He told me it makes too much noise but helps launching a ton.

I'm not trying to jump on anyone sorry, I guess I'm used to V8 TC where you really jump off the line. maybe the stall is not high enough.

I'm not sure I bought it from someone on ebay, I think its around 2400 but not sure, there is a difference, does anyone have the srt valve body? does it shift harder and faster?

whats your stall at?
