Got me on that one Randy....if you look in that light Motec was cheap and more importantly reusable

The reason I posted the comparison was Matteo had asked about advntages in a street car. Long, flat torque curves make great street cars while race cars can take better advantage of the high end HP curves.

When I discussed the advantages of Motec for my 3.4 engine, neither Chris or Alex would speculate on any gains we'd get from a conversion to Motec and ITB. Concensus was we'd gain length on the HP at higher rpm but no appreciate gain in numbers with out changing cams.

Basically little gain for that engine..or I suspect the 3.6 by going to Motec. Varioram on the other hand is an obvious improvement in low end torque.
