I can provide with some first hand South African information. I to have a 1.6 147. the first time i put it on a dyno, with just a freeflow exhaust and performance air filter, the power increases from those are very small in my opinion, the car was developing around 68kw's at the wheels, always thought that was a bit low but anyway.
Since then the car has had the cats removed, a branch manifold fitted and the car has been chipped. After the chip was remapped, to take advantage of the branch and decat, it is now developing around 83 kw's at the wheels. And I could certainly feel the difference on the drive home.
The only issue you are going to have with a similar setup to mine is the noise. With just freeflow, done by powerflow, it was a bit louder but had a really really nice sound to it, almost sounded like it was ment to come out the factory like that. However now with the branches and decat, the car is extremely loud, but still a nice sound. It doesnt really bother me, being young I quite like it, but others prob wouldnt agree. Hope this helps you
