    In my opinion my order would be
    1. Install an intake first follow by Remap there are alot of good remap company such as apr,revo,sharks,amd, superchip etc these can't go wrong and is just your personal preference and I went for Revo :)
    2. Get an exhaust after but i don't know alot about the 1.4TFSI I am sure there are people on this forum are willing to help

    Hope my opinion helps you

    An intake isn't going to make much difference on the 1.4TFSI engine. The best bet is a remap but do your research 1st as this type of ECU is locked and requires removal from the car to be 'bench' remapped. Lots of other threads on the forum discussing the pros and cons of remapping this way.

    You need a turbo, no question. I wouldn't even get it remapped without changing it. Loba do a nice one. The standard turbo is already flat out, and after a remap you end up with 135bhp if you are lucky.
