I looked into it - and then decided against it due to cost.

Other things that I found helped:

Extractors and 2.5" exhaust.
Get the dizzy checked - especially the vacuum advance - made a huge difference once that was fixed
Good air filter - I use a K&N cleanable filter
Hiclone - seemed to boost power - but not much effect on economy - might be the way I drive :)
Premium Unleaded Fuel

Hope this helps.

try www.performance ignition.com.au I changed the rotor in my gq and altered the tapit settings appears to have removed stutter on accelerating and slight improvement in economy so i am going to get tapits opened slightly more .this is there recomend if running on dual fuel.the rotor they supply is a nissan rotor but extended to close the gap steve
