    Pro - More MPG / Faster depending how you drive it, more fun.
    Con - More smoke.

    Yes you will get more power, but they are very drude and you acheive the power by simply getting the ECU to chuck in more fuel. Not ideal to be honest but you will see power improvements.

    The increased fuel acomony is a bit of a con as they fool the trip computer.

    Depends on which box you get mate, I have a steinbauer box fitted to mine and although they are pretty rare they are well worth the money. I have mine turned right up and there is no noticable increase in smoke and because of the way the steinbauer works it doesn't increase fuel pressure
