Default NX200T Charge pipe question/advice




Hi first time posting here. I bought a 2015 Lexus NX200T F-Sport FWD and love it but want to get a little more horse and throttle response out of it. I already put in the afe cold air intake system and now looking at a charge pipe. I saw the reviews on the FTP on here but nothing on an HPS. Does anyone on here have and HPS and they claim it adds 15 WHP and 19 lbs of torque whereas the FTP does not add any I believe from what I read. Is this true or just BS. Thanks in advance for any info.

Quoted figures seem a little bit too optimistic. I've been looking into getting this item despite seeing it more as a peace of mind mod rather than a performance mod (refer to: BMW plastic charge pipe issues, even on non-tuned vehicles). I'm not sure how heat soak becomes an issue though, since aluminum definitely conducts heat better than plastic. Might look into having the charge pipe heat-wrapped when I finally pull the trigger. Cheers
