## best bet would be to go with a vf39, turbo inlet and puleys dont do much and are debated on this site frequently. a vf39 and a protune as well as a sti top mpount could bring as higher then 300whp (tranny breaking territory) or you could have it tuned for a safer amount of hp.
used vf 39s go as low as 400$ and sti top mounts are around 150-250$ used. cobb may even have a map so you dont need a 400 protune although it would be much better.

Or you could look into a 16g that COBB has for the OTS maps.

How much do or are you willing to spend? A 3 port BCS can get you better spool and more power, just need to get one and tune for it. Thats about $400 or more right there. Even if you upgrade the turbo a 3port would be good to go with, as well as bigger IC, injectors, pump.

Don't do underdrive pulleys. At the most (why did I say least?)...just do lightweight pulleys.

Btw, a 06 stage3 VF39, STI TMIC, and 93 octane map will not put you over 300whp. It's 362 crank hp and take roughly 20% off that for drivetrain loss and your talking basically 290 whp. Close but, no cigar. That's probably a aggressive tune as well.

If you are stage 2 and dont want or have much money to spend you dont have many options. Maybe some do it yourself stuff like Port and polished stock turbo and a 3 port and tune, might be able to be done for about $500, but you wont hit your 300 mark either.

Those really arent power mods like he is wanting though. Good mods regardless, but he is looking for some more power. Like I mentioned though, he could possibly get some nice power gains by PnP his stock turbo and upgrading the BCS with maybe an internet tune or something.

Dynapacks read about 20% loss, mustang dynos are more like 30% loss. Just saying... the map that says 362bhp is probably closer to 255whp on a mustang dyno.

That's what I was thinking...but, all I could find was info on 20% loss. So, I ran with that.
