	Question:  Are we talking about the same 2.3 10v motor?  The 
motor that came stock in the '89 100q?  A friend used the 272, chip & K&N

testing.  If you have done this work, and really got this type 
improvement, can you tell me what exhaust work was actually done?  What 
about the low end loss, if any?  I would really appreciate any info you 
or anyone else has in pulling 180-200hp from the
