Notes: Most ratings are ranked "Poor-Fair-Good-Excellent". "Used" means the product was purchased secondhand, so you may not get an item for the same price that I got one, or even at all if it's rare. "Imperceptible" means the performance increase was not readily apparent to me in my daily driving, although dyno or track testing could yield quantifiable results. Also, other mods (or lack of mods) may have made this particular item's effect less noticeable. In some cases, comparing a stock car to one with only this mod installed may yield more noticeable differences, whereas in other cases, other mods may be necessary to realize one item's full benefit due to a synergistic effect.
