horse power needed

I have a RS Impreza 09 auto and Im looking to see if I fit extractors and bigger exhaust system what the extra horse power i would receive ? Plus any other ways to enhance horse power from the easist to the most complicated . If you know any of the estimated prices for these changes I would be greatful in hearing the approx costs as well . I have basic knowledge on these mechanical changes and if I have described something wrong could you please correct me . Thanks for your time in reading my entry , hope to hear from you soon .

Decat, air filter and remap will make a big difference

Re: horse power needed

Go for a high flow panel filter like a K&N, then a decat stainless exhaust system but keep the cat for MOT time or it'll fail, try Japspeed for the exhaust.
Then the remap as above so it's all working properly.
Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.
