    it never ends mate, part of the fun of being an enthusiast,

    where you go from here all depends on how far you want to go, you dont need any of the additions if you just want it stage 1mapped, only if you want to go therver

    i went in for a stage 1.5 with R-tech because i had a decat, TIP and fmic already fitted,
    if i had to pick my 2 best mods it would be the TIP (ebay special about £45) and the decat.

    they do ok, a bigger intercooler will make you able to go harder for longer (ooh err)

    mine was just off a stage 2, all that was holding it back was a free flowing exhaust and slightly larger fmic pipes.

    you could upgrade to a K03s turbo, i think the AGU had a k03, not sure what gains you can get between the two though

    jamie it never ends mate, hunt around on ebay and you will find bargains/cheaper stuff. im running smic at mo and it still holds boost but tappered off a bit this afternoon when it got really hot outside. definately go silicone TIP, made my turbo spin so much quicker. with maximum mods on an agu running standard ko3 you will struggle to break 200bhp. k03s with same mods you will be over 220 with ease. like i said to u on facebook once im sorted again with a job i will be saving to go k04 and do it properly. just decide what you want power wise, what the car is being used for and what budget. But from my experience you will always want more power. save up and go ko4...............................

    it will work to some extent, no doubt about that.
    if you go to a good tuner they will map to take into account the standard cooler.
    but you will alllways see high intake temps, which arent the best. hence why, modding never stops, with each mod you find another weak link, and let me tell you, there are **** LOADS of links
    all the best
