The power increase is noticable to the butt dyno. What you also notice is a more free revving engine and that wonderful turbo whizz. The actual power increase is dependant upon your present mods and the muffler you are using. The increase is not so much if you already have a free flowing muffler with a straight through design and a large ID.
What he said^^^

I have a zork that I dabble with. I love the sound, but there are too many occasions where I just want to be anonymous...it's hard to do when the drivers around you can feel the sound of this little pipe hitting them in the chest as you're stopped at a traffic light! I drive mine daily and the novelty of an open pipe wears off after about two weeks...then the muffler goes back on!
