Get her tuned so you can take advantage of the hw upgrades. These cars respond very well to tuning, they are my favorite to tune right now

Mods for 300 ft/lbs from 2.0T and 2.8T

From research, it seems that it won't require much to get either up to 300 ft/lbs.

For the 2.0T/t
injectors, turbo, exhaust, DP, FMIC, and tune
for the 2.8T
I'm not sure, because most people don't seem to tune the 2.8t. FMIC, DP, exhaust, tune?

Am I missing something? I am trying to get a handle and price list on parts to make an informed decision.

MPG is the main focus, so mods for effeciency are on top of the list.

Adding power isn't typically the way to get better fuel economy.

Just sayin.

And actually, a lot of people tune the 2.8t. I feel like that tuning market grew quicker than the 2.0t initially, but I might just be making that up.
