    Crossover delete and cone filter or cdti airbox, enlarged top hat then stage 2 re map which will give you somewhere near 290

    If you get front intercooler you can then push for stage 3 which would give you just over 300

    Other way round. Look at the handling then add power.

    RARB is first thing anyone should consider regardless of adding power or not
