Exhaust Mod without Tune.

So I installed FSWERK's Stealth Exhaust on my 2014 Sedan, but I don't have a tune. I was wondering how much power gains should I expect if I get a proper tune? Thanks

You probably won't see much gain since 1) you still have the stock exhaust manifold so it still bottlenecks at the smallest point and 2)without a tune, your engine will ignore it's extra potential and continue to try to drive as if it was stock

Maybe 1-2hp and noise. Header is restrictive.

Meaning the exhaust manifold....Add a tune & you'll find the engine more linear, smoother, responsive....

Best power gain you can get with that combination.

ASSUME you already did a replacement air filter and snorkel delete?

Yes, IMHO, since at low speeds you'd get warmer engine compartment air ingested.

ONLY useful for added noise - reduction for power.
