Default Quick DC5 Tuning question.. 10 pts!!?

Hi, I am in the process of buying a Honda Integra DC5 Type r.. K20 Engine, Pushing out 217bhp at the fly..... The current owner has a JS Racing Exhaust fitted and a Mugen Airbox instead of the standard Airbox........Other than that the car is standard.... What i want to know is what power increase (if any) will there be.???

What power increase will those two slight modifications make is what i mean ??

Unfortunately, the JS Racing Exhaust will not perform to it's potential because I'm going to assume that the OE header/cat is still used. Mugen products are usually just slightly better than stock but is it's OE quality if not better. Good news though, the K-series respond to mods quite well.

If you do not plan to retune the car with these modifications, 8~10hp peak gains is a conservative guess. If using the DC5r ECU, another 5hp peak isn't stretching it. Should you get yourself on a programmable ECU, like Hondata Kpro, your peak power wouldn't be drastically larger, estimating 20hp peak gain, but your overall rev range gain would be better.
