So just for fun I checked my 2019 limited 4x4 1.3t 0-60 mph today. Ran the same stretch of road both directions.
Thanks. I didn't know that.That. And it has more than the 1.4L it replaces.
None of those mods increase peak torque.Reason I got the Go-Pedal, Auto-Flash and full dual quad tip Ragazon exhaust.

The go-pedal essentially tricks you into thinking you're getting more power by modifying the electronic throttle, making it more sensitive. Auto-flash adjusts how the transmission shifts and hangs onto gears. Catbacks don't really offer performance differences.
To see increased torque you need something that modifies the boost pressure and fuel ECU mappings.
Its direct injection, so on the plus side it can likely take quite a bit of extra boost safety, but on the downside its going to have the same problem as all direct injection engines and cake up your intake valves over time, and there's nothing you can do about it. Any cleaners you use will likely screw up your cat. So for that reason I prefer the 1.4T chipped, as it won't be quite as efficient but in theory should run great for much higher mileage. Something to consider if you're not leasing and planning to drive it for 5-10 years.
Oh!... Crying now...
Well, I have been paying more attention while driving. Me no mechanic, I just drive....or in Renegade ownership!
Jessica is not wrong about the items that re-map the throttle, or improve the shifts. They don't increase overall horsepower or torque. But they CAN make the driving experience more enjoyable, and there's nothing wrong with that.
But I'm with Peebles24. With few exceptions (and those on more expensive vehicles) factory exhaust systems contain many comprimises to total performance, trading off a few ponies for lower manufacturing costs, ease of assembly, maximum quietness, etc. A performance oriented cat-back does not have to make these compromises, and can usually find you a few ponies. And they sound great, so again, nothing wrong with that.
\Maybe not more torque or hp [probably not!] but how would you express "quicker" from A to B. Definitely quicker as the car jumps! I even have to remind the guys when I have the oil changed. Would that be called "initial torque"?
