i remembered them from a friends in hi school(49 willy's) and driving em in the service(early 70's) and knew what to expect and accepted that. they were a blast to drv back then and they still are but they won't win any land speed records-although with improvements over the yrs, they are a little better than they were. think the 5 spd's are a dog-imagine them w/3 spds

Can you quote a source for this? As far as I know the EPA only prohibits modifying emissions equipment via chip. There are no rules regarding modifying fuel maps, timing, redline, or anything else not specifically related to emissions.

Most tuners and chips are "for offroad use only" and can do whatever they want. I highly doubt there is anything from the epa that says you can legally only modify full throttle near redline. I could see them saying that you can only modify full throttle settings, but that would be at any rpms, and highly doubtful in CA. I push the gas to the floor every day. Its only got 150hp at the tire.

Here in Banifornia, its illegal to modify timing, or fueling, or anything inside the ecu unless you go to CARB and have it certified (for about $50,000) to get an EO#.

If you can really get 20hp out of a tune, you would surly feel it. That is a 13% increase in power. I'll find out someday by sticking my jeep on the dyno with some 91 octane and seeing what I can do with the tune. I think 20 hp is VERY optimistic, maybe 8hp, but you never know until you try.
