More fuel i.e. fuel pump, and injectors. Also a larger intercooler, tbe, and a tune after that.

Downpipe, engine management, 565-650cc injectors, bigger name brand or STI TMIC, larger TMIC air splitter, sway bars, braided stainless steel brake lines, good performance brake pads, good brake fluid.

and most importantly BE COMPLETELY UP TO DATE ON YOUR MAINTENANCE. a compression test would be a good idea too just to be sure your stressing a tired motor :notgood:
