: 	I tried the jacobs pro street on my 87 4kq with hardly any noticeable 
power improvements, now I am running an MSD SCI w/ rev limiter, MSD blaster 
coil, and Nology Hotwires. the computer was $ 289, coil was $ 29, and wires 
where $ 220. I have noticed a significant amount of power gain. The only 
problem I've experienced is that the spark plugs go bad about three times 
sooner, due to the  nature of the MSD.
: I hope this helps
