Are they both stock? The early 99s were supposed to have different programming that gives them less then the later models.

Yeah the sticker on my valve cover says it's rated for 250Bhp. I don't know if that's accurate or not.

I believe that is to trick the map into not throwing the over boost code. I dont know if that works tho.
