    Intercooler, Exhaust manifold, Downpipe and exhaust system. Looking at over £1000 in parts alone.

    stage 2 is not manifold requirement mandatory imho.. Its a nice to have however.
    cooling and flow are your main targets to improve

    fmic, 3" downpipe and decent flowing exhaust system
    nice to have's manifold, water meth, BUT you are at this point both going to max out your injectors abilities and into the "peace of mind rods" region.... turbo will be max'd, injectors will peg out at 270-280bhp level......... Presumes everything is all healthy and dandy of course (a rare thing from what I see these days) - old cars now remember

    It was the sex! 281bhp 279lbft at 180k miles on my car. Torque was reduced to respect the age and mileage of the car. Torque was 293lb ft before it was reduced but like bill said. Injectors were maxed out. Flow flow and flow is what you need!
