    The up-pipe is a must for the older engine generations as they have catalytic converters in them. The newer generations do not, so there is less reason to swap them. The external wastegate is more effective at bleeding off unwanted excessive boost pressure as compared to the stock system. Porting the stock turbo would also help with this same issue. I don't think either of these will really get you more performance though. They are mostly for people who experience "boost creep" and will allow you to control the boost properly. They are safer and for some people with high flow intakes/exhausts in cold climates they can become a necessity. They also seem to be a good choice if upgrading the turbo and starting to push some serious air through the engine.
