    To simplify things, this isn't exactly the platform to stick with if you want substantial power gains. That said, run the highest octane you can afford; you don't need racing gas but premium does help. You can run a larger intake (if legal, I'm from the US) emphasis on large, those $199US intakes actually restrict airflow over the stock setup. A number of people have had luck with the larger FMIC kits as well. If nothing else a modest tune will work wonders. Just don't expect any of this to be cheap or really get you close to anything like what you could get from a WRX.
    This VT is out there somewhere, but it is no longer mine.....Pierce rear torsion bar, VT-One Strut Brace, 65-duro lower motor mount insert, Rigid Collars, K&N drop in air filter, MSW Type 25 16 inch wheels, Continental Purecontact Tires, very skinny driver

    3.5" intake with a good flowing filter, catless or high flow cat down pipe, catless exhaust 2.5-3", good FMIC kit, proper plugs for mods, and run highest octane fuel. A good tune with good fuel and tightening the OEM plug gap can yield higher gains than all the bolt ons though.

    Well what about boosting it ?
    I haven't seen anything on raising the boost
    I don't no what they come out standard ?
    But would a few psi hurt?

    That's partially what a tune does. Raising it manually will not do much of anything for power and can be dangerous leading to bigger issues.

    Oh ok. So "tuning" means more boost. Get it.

    No other tricky things i can do.

    Exhaust, intake, Front mount intercooler, tune and other supporting mods take you up from 150kW stock to about 220-230kW. The limits of the Dual clutch transmission may be an issue for you around (or before) this point. Bigger turbo and engine guts can get you to closer to 250kW and beyond but you are really pushing the platform past it's limits at that point.

    Ya the limit of the transmission is around 250-260 wtq in lb/ft which will be good for around just over 300 whp SAE corrected at redline. Better clutches are available though to hold more power. But many mods are needed before this point.
