pd130-150 turbo
turbo off the 2.5 v6 audi a4, and if it fits!
vw T4 injectors (which engine ect)

I would do a search on the forum. Chris Adams adams24 has covered this several times. The power you can get out of these engines is really determined by how deep your pockets are.
I don't see anywhere in your list a clutch or brake upgrades.
it's quite easy to get 170bhp with injector changes a vnt17 PD130 turbo and a change to the pump. It seems if you make the right mods with injectors and turbo and balance air and fuel improvements you can get very good improvements without having to chip the car.
Waits for chris to come along :D

PD 130 turbo and 0.216 nozzles are too small for true 11mm pump. The 10mm pump you have is good for over 170-180 Bhp. The 11mm pump is very rare, much easier to get a 11mm pump head from Transit or renault vans. Couple that head with a de43 cam plate and you'll have plenty fuel for 200 Bhp. I would look at different nozzles if you aim for 200 Bhp, Bosio race 520 or Power Plus 520 are very good. Chipping the AFN ecu is a black art really, the difficult part is de-soldering the old chips and soldering the new sockets in. There are tuners who solder the chips directly onto the PCB but i would not recommend it if you're planning to further tune the engine by adding intercoolers and such.
The v6 tdi turbo won't fit easily, it's big and most likely will hit the chassis rail if you're using the stock exhaust manifold. You could use a AHU manifold on which some gifted welder can TIG weld a t25 flange (plenty on ebay for only £15) which would allow for more air. The easiest turbo swap is the bv43 as it's plug and play on afn manifold and engine with no need for additional components . Another popular upgrade is a gt1752 hybrid which you can make by using the gt1749VA hotside and the GT2052v compressor and wheel. That will get on boost quicker than the gt2052 and flow almost as much air.
Nozzles, turbo and remap will keep you plenty busy for a while but- power is addictive- so you'll get used to it pretty quick ! Set your goals from the beginning and you won't go far wrong. The clutch will complain regardless of which turbo you'll use as it's already at it's torque limits so getting a upgraded one is a must- not cheap for the longitudinal engines. Sachs SRE is highly recommended.

Sell up and buy a V6 TDi, other than that you'll struggle to even do the uprated clutch you'll need before you even get round to uping the power :lol:

Small budget tuning is really a lost art, gone are the days you can play with the carb and bolt a plywood scoop to your bonnet for cold air, Stuff nowadays costs and with big power gains to be had there is a bigger picture that you haven't even mentioned yet................. Brakes.
