    Massive difference in power when I had mine done John, I couldn't believe how much it had lost. It still drove fine with the swirl bar off, but when the new manifold was fitted it was like a different car. Mine was off for 30k+ though.

    Yes John, that's what prompted me to get it fixed. I had it remapped shortly afterwards too.
