I would not expect more power from the RoW reflash, just no CEL.

As for the PC hack of a PST2, there is a PC version of the PST2, but you still need the Bosch interface card and special cable, which are still spendy. There were two versions of the PST2, one that used it's own computer and one that used a standard PC. There is a way to buy the PST2 type of computer and hack it to run the PST2 software and save some money that way. If you do a google search you can find where someone did this. It looks like a major hack though, not something simple.

Okay, here are some links to the threads I was talking about (I hate to leave anything hanging and not provide the link):

2000 Boxster S - Gemballa body kit, GT3 front bumper, JRZ coilovers, lower stress bars
2003 911 Carrera 4S - TechArt body kit, TechArt coilovers, HRE wheels
1986 911 Carrera Targa - 3.2L, Euro pistons, 964 cams, steel slant nose widebody
1975 911S Targa - undergoing a full restoration and engine rebuild
Also In The Garage - '66 912, '69 912, '72 914 Chalon wide body, '73 914
