    Forge 007p Diverter Valve.fmic will prevent heatsoak.

    upgrade your N75 valve to an N75 'J' I did mine and noticed more mid range power also your hoses as standard ones can collapse with a remap.

    N75J does a good work..try changing the spark plugs as well use the
    Bosch F5DPOR or the NGK BKR7E but change the gap to 0.28inches(only for the NKGs).
    as well as that go for an air filter as well as a turbo inlet...

    minor stuff like valves and air filters isnt going to do anything noticable to your car apart from reduce your bank balance

    sort out the suspension to use the available power - an upgraded anti-roll bar (particularly the biggest rear you can find) will reduce understeer and a bit of lowering and better dampers will add some front negative camber (you need to max out both bottom ball joints as well) and improve things no end, all within your budget.
