Lightbulb 2013 Genesis 2.0T with almost 100k miles. Still worth it to mod?

Hello!

I bought a 2013 Genesis 2.0T about 8 months ago. It has 96,5** miles on the odometer, when I got it, it had 86,7***. Anyway! It has a full pipe exhaust on it already, it sounds great and everything with the engine is still running the same as the day I got it. I'm just maintaining fluid levels and getting oil changes regularly when I'm supposed to. Recently I have become interested in modding my car more and I've done the research and have a basic idea of what else I want to do to it. I'm not looking for 400 HP or anything crazy like that, I just want to add about 50 HP and I'll be good. I'm thinking to put either the K&N cold air intake because it has a higher HP boost, or the Injen Short Ram air intake because it has a nice torque boost. But I'm not sure yet.
My question after that is should I change the whole intercooler system or can I get away with only changing the piping? Should I change the fan (not sure the fan will matter that much? lol)
The next thing I was thinking to do would be an ECU flash or a tune. I've done some research into that but I don't have a clue what I should do to get the best bang for the money and also have to do the least modifications.
My final question would be; IS IT STILL WORTH IT? Since the car is creeping up toward 100k miles I want it to go strong for as long as possible. Or would you recommend to just leave it how it is??? I love this car, I just want to improve on it a bit.

HELP! and thank you!

You may get plenty of opinions. Mine is the LAP3 Uncle Chip. My dad put his 14 RSpec 2.0T on a Dynojet down by Chicago. He put 200 and change to the rear wheels, stock. Plugged in the LAP3 and gained an actual 40 HP to the wheels. This is exactly what LAP3 claims for the 9 octane setting. It takes 5 minutes to plug in, or remove for trip to dealer. Between he and I, we put many trouble free miles on these.

I had my used one that a guy named Bonsai, on here, wanted. We agreed on a price and I sent it to him and he never paid me. What a f-wad POS.

Get your basic bolt-on's and a tune from SFR or BTR. 30-50+ HP gains easy.

with almost 100k on it, you should get the engine rebuilt anyways.
Might as well get better internals, then slowly start adding everything else.

All intakes available for 13 and up are actually short ram air intakes and even those with heatdhield will loose power when hiod is closed due to higher air temp - car will pull timing.
Stock intake is actually CAI, just get a filter for it.

Stock intercooler is good up to 400whp, keep it.

Before tune, its beneficial to have turbo back exhaust - drainpipe + exhaist. Not sure if you have stock downpipe. Also new plugs with smaller gap.

Best tune for your car is Alphaspeed - go with custom tune. Lap 3 - you will eather leave some power on the table or blow up your engine - turbo cars should be only custom tuned to be safe. Plus Alphaspeed will get you alot more than Lap can do ... pops and bangs, lunch controll...

Btr no longer tunes and SFR has reputation to blow engines with his can tunes.
Look into Aphaspeed if you want best you can get. Deallers throught US and also remote kits available if dealer is not close by. Alphaspeed is ran on/throught Facebook.

You will want to take the valve cover off and look for timing chain wear. My engine after 100k miles and a new chain (the BK1s are pathetic) is running better now than when new.

If you're serious about modding, better rebuild it first.
