JTD decat and front mount intercooler?

Im looking at getting a decat, free-flow downpipe and a front mount intercooler to my JTD GT. It already has a TDI-Tuning box, but I want more power.

The tuning box made a huge difference to the power of the car, but before i spend some more hard earned cash, will i notice and real gain from the above mods?

Thanks

Wizard Exhausts will sort you for the freeflow downpipe, and you can get a FMIC kit here: Intercoolers : Intercoolerkit GT JTD

Downpipe should really help the turbo spool up quicker, and the FMIC will reduce the EGT which helps unlock tuning potential.. To get best benefit you'll want a proper remap to replace your tuning box (e.g. Autolusso/RedDot/Alfatune), but you'll probably feel the downpipe!

The downpipe really does make a difference - the car was much more responsive. A proper remap will help even more - mine is by Gus.
