    with the two mods, the car will be more responsive and you will get a slight increase in the induction noise... i dont think you will see any major increase in power... 2 bhp max if anything

    i think that that must be the first mod that everyone does to give that little bit more response.

    To clear this up -
    you wont necesarily get more power - it makes the accelerator more responsive...
