    What important mod have I overlooked?

    Hello guys & gals, had the S3 4 months now and done a few mods to make it a better car. Just wondering if i've overlooked any important mods?

    I've stage 2 revo with SPS
    Lowering springs
    Adjustable rear tie arms
    Itg induction kit
    Turbo back system
    Forge recirc valve
    Boost gauge
    TIP
    AH V2 intercooler
    Cupra R Brembos
    H&R wheel spacers

    Pretty much decided on these mods from reading on the owners club as being a good combination. Not sure if there's much more I can do without having to forge the engine?

    Thanks for any help/advice :-)

    Cheers guys, forgot i,'ve done the dogbone mount! I bought the forge TIP which wasn't cheap. Is the badger 5 TIP a noticeable difference over the forge item?

    Can I have drop in uprated rods or does it require a full build? Car has covered 69K

    Thanks

    Catch can looks like a good idea what's a decent setup to go with? Is it best to buy as a kit or to gather parts individually?
    Thanks
