First off, don't bother changing the induction or exhaust system if you're looking for a performance gain. Whilst many people claim that their cold air inducted XYZ is quicker than the standard car, for the most part, they just sound quicker. If you don't have dreams of running a 200 PS set up, and just want a more modest improvement, then getting the ECU reprogrammed is an excellent first step you can take.
