    Well I am at 450chp with stock internals. Apr stage 3 with the gt2871r turbo. The new stage 3 has a gtx2867r turbo. So it is a step up even with a tad bit smaller turbo.

    So any company turbo kits with something equal to a 2871r or bigger, rebuild internals and get a head job done. You would be good to go

    Make sure you get an LSD for that trans as well, you will need a suspension to handle that power and bushings to help with all the slop from the stock bushinga

    You don't have headers.

    On the 2.0T it's an exhaust manifold, which you could upgrade. I'm sure there are benefits to doing that on a build like you're intending.
