I posted the same question on TMS forum. I was told the only change was a cleaner intake and tb/plenum. It does reduce the visual clutter. But it requires a tune so it doesnt throw a code.

I'm not worried about it throwing a code!.. I've got a DiabloSport tuner I can turn it off with!.. Just curious if there were any type of performance gains at all!..

I wouldn't think there's really any benefit. Maybe a fraction better flow of exhaust lol I'm deleting mine just because the kits like 30 bucks and I hate seeing it on there. For some reason they always look rusty and I hate it.

Will just help with efficiency. One less operation. Everything flows better. Don't think you will see any difference if you were to dyno before and after. If you take off the smog pump and egr and go short belt you will gain some, plus weight off the front. Plus less clutter as mentioned before.

I don't have kids but everything is black. In the summer I wouldn't be able to grab the wheel or the shifter.

After a little looking I believe your right. The idea remains the same, reducing accessories will free up HP. AC, PS, and even electric water pumps.

I've looked into electric water pumps but haven't seen one good enough for a daily driver!.. What I want is maximum performance and yet be reliable enough to drive every day!.. Maybe someday they will make one that's good enough!...

You can only do away with the water pump if you replace it with an electric one!.. But like I said I don't think they are good enough for daily use!..

The sn95 platform is not bad with out the P/S as well. I like the feel of it w/o P/S. it's definitely not for everyone though.

Your good man I just like to look for myself! Haven't looked recently, but I know the are electric water pumps that claim to be up to the task of DD. I will say when I was looking it was for my 1st 95 GT.

Sounds right. There were only a few out there when I was looking(years back).

Ya I've seen those that claim it but lack the evidence to prove it!... When it comes to things like water pumps I want some thing that I know is going to work, vs simple claims!.. I'm still keeping my eyes open for one!.. My favorite way of getting more hp is by freeing up what the motor already has!.. Means less work for the motor which in turn means it will last longer!..

Don't know as far as proof.. Never seen anyone claim they bought one that failed either. If they are still around making the same claims as 10 years ago I'd imagine they probably hold up or there be something somewhere saying its bs. Imo

I guess I don't see how it wouldn't be able to do a dd. it's the same as you electric fans on your car. It just turns the blades and forces the coolant around. But I do know that not all electrics are meant to be on all the time and all conditions. I know a guy who put a 300 amp alt on his truck at my audio shop and I told him it wouldn't last. Sure enough it died his first time driving more then 30 min lol

Electric fan army on all the time!.. They turn on and off as is needed!.. The water pump needs to stay on!... I've just come a cross a few that have used them and they burned out on them after about a month!.. Just kinda makes me a bit of a skeptic about them!.. My car has to be a DD for now so I just can't risk it, as much as I would love to free up some more HP!!...
