You gain an astounding 3 HP! But seriously, that is a conservative estimate and these engines are tuned to the brim from the factory, so no cheap horsepower. Any significant increase in power means you'd have to go FI.

3 hp @ $100 per HP.

purchase price of my car / the horsepower

42,000/184 = $228 per HP

so $100 per HP is a steal!

I take time doing some number-crunching, but most of it is spent on seeing if the bottle is ergonomic enough.
