    Well the very next thing you need to do if you haven't already is some kind of engine management. Having a turbo back exhaust without a tune for the turbo back you can damage your engine. There are plenty of good stickies about this. I don't exactly remember what WHP you get w/ a tune and a turbo back exhaust. you should be able to find out on some of the other threads, search function is your friend.

    There's really nothing you can do after the TBE (you have a tune for it right?) unless you upgrade your turbo.

    i'm not sure, but with a good protune you can come near 250 whp, and your tq will be crazy. If you don't already have a Cobb AccessPort, buy one and then get a custom tune for your car at a local shop. Should be pretty satisfied... for a while.

    well... have you touched the intake yet?

    I read lots of people on this forum going stage II for power, then doing suspension mods to increase handling.

    Those three things can be done without upgrading your turbo, and will give you faster spool / more hp

    NOTE: You'll need a custom tune for those upgrades
