They do help some, it's towards the top IIRC.

You will need a tune that accounts for the cams otherwise there is no point. You will need to contact the tuner to let them know. Might be a little extra since it's not a standard tune.

Which turbo will you be running? If it's the stock turbo, then I wouldn't worry about it. You won't see enough gains to really make it worth it. It's really for the bigger turbos that don't run out of steam with our motors.

I put them in when I did my stg3 tune from jzw. A little loss down low and more pull up top. I also personally like how they made the car drive around town just a slightest different, more like a t5 car. Plus I had a few sets laying around so figured why the hell not.
