The power cap is ment to be better for Torque, but i did hear the sfi box with a good filter and drilled a little bit is ment to be better than them both

I had a power cap on my Xe corsa, then changed to a Eco tec. Found the power cap made it better at 100+ mph but up to 100 the ecotec pipe was better. Just what I felt it was like. I also know a guy who might still have one if you want me to ask? He bought my engine and took both intake pipe and power cap

Produced more power and better torque throughout the revs.

Someone should have the graphs.


if i remember rightly the std sfi box was better than both of them:boggle:

I used a Powercap because the ecotec pipe is rubber and just splits

Was just wondering if a power cap would make much of a diffrence?
And if anyone had one for sale?
Thanks
