Just go with the usual bolt-ons, and stage upgrades from mopar. It all depends on how much power you want and how much you've got to spend.

I think your pretty much screwed if you go that route. boost= more power.
Just spend money on the S1 pcm and a new wg. Re-route your vacuum source. And your all good. ;)

Join in on the fun. :)

Srtblubyu, could you tell us how "trying the boost thing messed up your car bad?" Since this vehicle is turbo-charged, naturally the easiest way to increase horsepower would be to increase boost and further increase the vehicle's efficiency. If upping your boost created huge problems, then you may have something wrong that may need rectifying.

Bent your throttle body? Wow, I don't think I'm familiar with that happening. I ran 18 psi on S0 ('04) for 3 months, and had no problems whatsoever. How is everything running now?

boost, fuel, timing. bending the TB is a thread in & of itself. never heard that one before.

why dont you buy a used s1 (at least) & work from there. for all intents & purposes, you could do "fine" w/ s1 plus agp wga and a boost controller. gotta watch egt's. recommend dyno on that. but it's cheap.

when it comes to cars, i need stuff in a "package", so s2 for me. no engine probs @ all. well, i had hard starts that miraculously cured itself.
