The boost increase will bump up your power of course, the exhaust just lets that power come in sooner.

This is where the line is drawn between turbo and N/a gas engines. These performance upgrades can help your mpg with a turbo, but usually not with n/a. More torque down low can help mpg.

Of course thats only if youre driving for mpg lol.
