Default Anything To Gain from Using Piggyback on N/A car?

I know this site is mainly for turbo discussion and I've been slowly building a turbo kit for my 2000, but I was thinking the other day. Is there anything that I can actually gain from using my Xede now on an N/A car?

Any help would be great, thanks.

Nope, being able to tune timing and fuel never adds any more power...

You should use the ECU now while your car is NA.

1. Make car reliable
2. Upgrade clutch to handle boost
3. Install ECU and LEARN how to use it
4. Add larger injectors/FP and other goodies while still NA
5. Install turbo kit and use knowledge of ECU to not blow up your car
