I own a 2.4 NA engine 170hp. I was thinking about ugrading the ECU and air filter with S.A.M. ECU upgrade and K&N sports air filter. S.A.M. says that this upgrade should add 15 hp and I would feel an increase in torque and better engine response.

I dont know much about this. Do you think that the difference would be noticeable? is it worth the money?

You would probabbly be spending around 1000 bucks for 15hp... This really isnt worth it.. Thing is i got 30+ hp with my chip done by GIAC www.giacusa.com but the thing is with a normally asperated car you do not get the hp boost taht a turboed car would gain with a chip upgrade. If you are serious about making your car faster, and have some cash...... turbo it, then chip it...
