The car already has 60 HP. Just do the simple stuff like deliping, scoop and K&N filter with the TIK pipe. Aftermarket muffler you will gain the sound and a little power. You will notice an emprovement in power if you do all the things I stated. If you install a biger turbo you will get more power but the ECU will back off the boost without a good remap. You do not need the power throttle. It will seam neat at first but after a week you will not notice any differance. There is NO POWER gain you just think you have more power. I call it the smoke and hide trick.
If you want to open up the exhaust you could gain some power. But you would have to cut it open and remove some buffles. I did it once but the sound was not good so I went with the aftermarket exhaust.
