Forget a turbo. You couldn't set up even a half assed turbo system for $2k. Brakes in this car are pretty good so unless you are going for huge power or lots of track time a big brake upgrade isn't necessary. Maybe cross drilled rotors. Try a Dinan spring, shock/strut, sway bar, camber plates. You'll save a couple hundred bucks by mixing and matching suspension components but you'll feel it. I have Alpina/ Racing Dynamics/ Bilstein set up but my old Dinan set up was better. Also, a good UUC short shift kit is such a pleasure to use....EVERY time you seems worth the money. Chips, exhaust and intakes seem to make such unnoticable power gains, "yeah,...I think I can tell the difference!!!???" that I don't bother. But I have a turbo set up.
