not impressed -yet!

hi guys,
recently fitted induction kit followed by full decat system, and have to admit to being seriously underwhelmed by apparent lack of increase in performance ; i suppose my only next step is a remap, but i thought i'd notice something especially with the decat (although she sounds well )-any ideas or suggestions?
(ps am about to get a celfix to remove the cel light but as mentioned in previous posts, i presume this doesn't affect the performance, only the exhaust gas readings to the ecu)
by the way, it's an 04 wrx uk

cheers
billy

not sure about the CEL thing but you'll notice a huge difference from jumping from a none remapped decat car to a mapped decat car

Gotta be honest noticed the difference straight away on a classic from the decat(air filters hardly noticeable probably only about a 3-5bhp increase at high revs) otherwise its just for the noise

Noticed some little difference after fitting the Magnex back box and rear decat pipe but nothing compared with the remap.

I think the CEL will cause power loss, may be wrong but if the ECU is getting a wrong reading then it will try to compensate thus affect performance....


I would get a remap ASAP though....
