    You would need to look at:

    Direct route with cdti or cone filter
    Fuel pump
    Inlet mani (klassen, eds, Romanian copy)
    Forging internals
    Cams with uprated single/double valve springs
    Turbo it self (Owens hta k06, TD stage 3)

    But then if your getting power I'd also recommend:

    Big brake kit (veccy setup, ksport, Alcon, ap's)
    LSD (quaife, mfactory, wavetrac)
    Rarb (white line)
    Springs/shocks or coilovers
    Solid engine mounts (vibratechnics or polybush inserts


    These are just some things I'm sure people would suggest or change some of the above

    So with all this what is the cost going to be that sounds like a lot of upgrades, also is it worth it and what would a map do running a few basic upgrades like inter cooler exhaust induction etc

    Running stage 3 is good but as long as you got some handling mods like springs, rarb and diff the car will feel so much better.

    I've had my two weeks now and getting used to the power already but with the LSD, rarb and daps it feels amazing. Could always be made better tho

    What's the ride like with the daps compared to standard springs?
