    Okay buddy there are four things you need to sort out listed below before you head to those numbers,

    Chains if pre October 2010 speak to Nick150 cheapest who can do it and comes recommended by members on here.

    The Clutch (flywheel while you are doing it) the standard will not handle the power.

    The Haldex it will not deal with the increased torque now you can wait until it fails but that could cost 3k plus there is an upgrade route see Thorneys website.

    The Brakes with all that power you will need to stop the car the Brembos on the car are poor.

    Now you have done all of that you will require a full exhaust.

    Next a bigger intercooler

    Panel filter.

    Bigger turbo you can go Hybrid or if you go for something like GT30 then you will need pipework

    Injectors Bosch 550cc as a minimum.

    All of this will not leave you much change if any from 10k......

    Good luck getting to the 400 club..... See you when you get there 😁

    Should be but I am not that mechanical. Big bad Bob is having an Owens version of the gt30 fitted.

    I'm currently on a Hybrid.

    Don't forget the fuel pump it will struggle to keep up if you change the injectors
