The big thing to look at it duty cycle and HPO pressure. If you are keeping the pressure high and the duty cycle low, you will notice very little difference. But if you pressure is dropping off and the duty cycle is going up, then the T500 will make a noticeable difference

So you're saying a 15* stock pump good condition is just as good as a 17* t500?

Put your chip on extreme and stomp on the gas, does it throw a CEL? If it did, test done, get a T-500
