That is the point you don't see, it WILL NOT increase power AT ALL even if you increase flow.

The ECM can see how much power is being made, it then reduces the available power down to what it is programmed to. That is the WHOLE point. It is programmed for a given power output and will reduce output to that level.

GM and the rest have gone that route to reduce/eliminate warranty claims because of people modifying the cars after purchase.

The point is, do whatever you want, the computer will reduce power output to what is programmed. That is why you NEED a tune.

If you notice, not a single other person is arguing against this fact. Everyone else KNOWS that is the way these cars are set up.
