New tires would probably really help you out.

As far as more power, there are plenty of turbo upgrades...oh big turbo...
...anyway, yeah if you want a ton more power I think that is the direction you are going to have to head in my friend; K03's can only flow so much....

More traction can be gotten from better tires, or a Limited Slip. More power can be gotten from a bigger turbo!

quiafe makes a good LSD used by alot of people

As for the clutch, alot of "stg 2" are really just vr6(228mm) clutch disk and a lightweight flywheel.
Arron said something about using a vr clutch with a g60 flywheel, but i wouldnt spend the money on the tranny untill your current clutch blows. LSD is a smart upgrade if you plan on making big power someday

Get rid of the Upsolute and get a GIAC or APR.

What about a front mount IC or a boost controller?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Front Mount won't give you much power but it will add a tiny bit and is a good idea if you are going with a turbo upgrade or a lot of boost. It will prevent heatsoak which will hurt your car's performance.

A boost controller will allow you to fine tune your setup after getting a chip. It will allow you to bump the boost up so you hold a bit more than what you would with a chip. However, it's not a good idea to just go out and buy a boost controller and crank up your boost. Unless you have a way to control timing and air/fuel ratios, get a chip first then use the boost controller to fine tune.

Silverstone is chipped with upsolute though. and he has an intake and exhaust.

How much would you be able to crank up the boost on a stock bottom end?

Well, if you want to stick with the K03, you could get:

Turbo Inlet Pipe Samco Hose
N75 Valve ECS
Heat-Resistant Gasket NewSouth Performance
Underdrive pulleys ECS
Intercooler Pipe (not big horsepower but at least it smooth out airflow) Neuspeed or ABD
BRAND NEW High-Flow intake manifold (probably not much hp here) ABD
Might want to throw in a 4-bar fuel pressure regulator just in case VWP

Hope this helps, although don't expect a ton more hp....

Raf Makes a good Point. But a 3puck clutch isn't very friendly as a daily driver, 6puck would be ok. Look into AWE and Ecs Stg 3 packages

I have had my car over a year, and have held off on the suspension. Why, you ask?

I fear the sound of a cracking oil pan.

As soon as I get a Dieselgeek skid plate, thats when I'll be getting some suspension.

How much lower than stock does the car have to go before you have to start worrying about that?
