Remember, however, that if you SC, in order to keep the car's performance balanced, you will need wider wheels and tires and a brake system with better stopping power. The costs escalate. You may want to add a gauge cluster, a better oil cooler, etc, etc.

Ask yourself this: If you had to stay with the overall power level/speed capability of this car in stock form, would you be okay with it? If yes, then NA. If no, then SC.
I wouldn't call 40 whp or 55 BHP not "real power" Catless, filter and tune commonly gives you 30-40 whp and that is not at all nothing
