The only effect that maybe a negative for some people would be the transfer of vibration and harmonics in the cockpit. The common complaint is disconnect and lag. The responsiveness, engagement acceleration will have crisper feel. Generally you will feel more connected and engine acceleration will quicken. The boost will come on sooner with reduced turbo lag. It won't add hp but converts that energy into motion you can use. Also still very easy to drive. Feels like 50hp. I would go for it.

I used to machine the release bearing and starter ring extension parts when I worked at MODE. Vary familiar with the parts.
