Re: Are there any 2.3L "NF" power mods?

There were a few tuners that had offered chips for the 10v non-turbos
80's and 90's. TAP comes to mind. But really, that isn't much of a
boost for the money.
I'd suggest instead of buying a chip, get the ignition system
Then get to the 'college' mods:
bump the timing
perhaps a K&N (or clean element)
move the knock sensor off the block.
(I tried this, maybe it works, maybe not- I never revved the 5000sq
engine too high)
Another trick I tried and had little luck:
use a little set screw or something to force the 2nd butterfly on the
throttle body to open earlier.
When I tried it, the car was nearly undriveable- made the throttle as
close to binary as possible.
