I have not dynoed mine like Vetsvette...but my setup is the same. I notice that in regular driving mode the car feels quicker, and when I push it in sport mode I get more tire chirping than I used to. I have not gotten any knocking @ 100 octane.Looks like i will have to get it then! When you say noticeable,.... How noticeable?

Thanks man! There are a few tuners that do the NM Power module for a reasonable price and since I am having so much difficulty in sourcing a Remus or JCW Pro aftermarket muffler I am thinking that this would be the best use of my cash (the other choice was a carbon fiber airbox made and serviced by Japan Mini (will add a picture of this below). With regard to the PowerModule, in addition to the performance gains, do you notice any differences accoustically? In other words does it get louder or backfire more in certain rev bands after the change?No problem at all. All the module does is allows a higher boost level. In low setting I believe it's an additional 3.5 pounds and high setting is 5 pounds. That's why I went with the low setting with the JCW Tuning Kit. It will run in the high setting, but actually makes less power than the low setting (with 94 octane) because the ECU backs off on the timing curve to prevent pre-detonation (knock). With the standard MCS engine the high setting is fine with a minimum 93 octane. Factory JCW and JCW Tuning Kit I would recommend low setting unless running racing fuel (100+ octane). YMMV
In Japan, an NM Power Module is the same price as the carbon intake - only reason I was thinking of doing the intake instead of the Power Module is worries about getting a string of error messages and possibly voiding my warranty.Love the intake, but not for $845. Tell you what. I'll send you a NM Power Module and you send me one of those intakes.
Thanks, I checked with them about 2 months ago and they didn't have anything tested for the Factory JCW. I will give them a call.Check with Jerry at NM Engineering. He can probably help you out.
