What should you feel?

Not much.

It's already cold outside.

You might have felt a difference if it was hot out and you tested it by running the regular set up hard, then changing over to the Viggen IC. You might have felt that you kept boost a little longer with the Viggen IC....

I got a little less lag, I think it was worth it.

i would say you will see/feel a little sharper throttle responce and the turbo will spool up a little faster, i fitted one and i liked it but i did find it heat soaked in traffic faster than the stock one, but then i cooled faster once out of traffic too

oh and you can't change the I/C with out removing the bumper, sorry
