Hi guys just a question about decals we all know that they can increase the horse power of a car but what about viper stripes, has anyone any idea what kinda power increase i can expect from my new strips?

I was hoping for around 15 bhp more but ive no experience with these mods can anyone help me?

The Americans normally do this to cover up an ordinarily plain dull motor so the only question would be WHY :cry:

Pffft, you only get 15bhp with a single white stripe (didn't Max Power teach you anything?!)

The fact you've fitted 3 colours means you should be mixing it up with Veyron and Koenigsegg drivers as the average increase is around 600bhp for a green stripe alone...:cool::D

Also, remove the airfilter and airbox then stretch a stocking over the MAF. Another instant 40bhp increase. I learned this from an 18yr old with his hat on backwards on McDonald's car park so it must be accurate...:cool:

Door cards? who needs them? really and seats, a good old early 90s school chair will do you... Imagine that light chassis...

Pump the tires up too around 100psi, that is another 5 second off the 0.60 :lol:

:wow: you never knew that

You run them along side the glow plug , thats how they came up with the Twinspark idea for the petrols



Fill the tyres with hot water too for extra sticky rubber , cos with all this extra power you'll need the grip .
That's how the big boys run 8sec quarter miles at Santa Pod...lol

Don't forget to stick on a fake bonnet air scoop ( same as a Scobby ) this gives you an extra 11.6 BHP , those stripes are are the same colours of the Italian flag, massive coincidence :cheese:
