My car has came a long way since i bought it.
Add my car group on Instagram: sxtuning for some photos!
In terms of power, because i already had the sport chassi from R-design, i only did chip tunning and straight pipe
But the double-mass fly wheel is giving me problems because of the increased torque and the intercooler pipes blew up twice hahah

Save your money.

You won't notice any change after fitting it.

They just don't have the power to warrant a bigger intercooler.

If you are going to get the car mapped make sure you have fitted the uprated intercooler FIRST as contrary to a prior post (I think Direnza may have an available cooler).
Only a custom remap will do so you can take advantage of the denser air on tap, otherwise it'll be only good for reducing heatsoak on repeated pulls.
As the car's software will be calibrated to make X amount of power and torque, the boost and fuelling will not change so the ECU needs re-calibrating to accommodate the larger intercooler.
