I run it on my 2000. I love it. Some have not liked it but I cant figure out why. It helps starting, runs crisper right off of the bottom and lugs around easier. You do not have to rejet generally. Since you won it and it takes only a few minutes to install, what do you have to lose? Try it. It doesnt increase top end or horsepower and it doesnt hinder them either, just increases throttle response.

The original Power Now fits between the carb and airbox (like mine). The Power Now plus fits between the carb and cylinder .

Made one for my 02' 426. No horse increase but a much better throttle response and easier to start.
