Well,
Got the ok from wifey to give her 2005 NBC a bit more "Oomph" so taking what i've learned in the last 1~2 months from the forums i've ordered the following parts.

Whew, I figured this was a pretty good start at modding our NBC. So im open to suggestions, what did i miss? The only restriction i really have is that i want to stick with the K03 Turbo, I know its only good up to 220hp and my goal with our NBC is 220hp. So if you know of anything that is glaringly obvious that i missed then drop me a link so i can order it :D
On a side note, for those that recognize me from the old forums, our NBC now has 1600 miles on it and its still getting 13~17mpg. I brought it to the dealership to have them run a VAG but no codes popped up, I've been running 97 octane fuel in it so I don't think thats the issue. I'm really stumped while the fuel mileage is so poor.
