"Mild" 2L TS upgrade

I'd like to update my 156 a bit, what I have planed to do..

K&N 57i intake ( Dont bother now, its already orderd :3 )
Ragazzon exhaust from cat, then supersprint manifold?
*Eventually* Cams from Autodelta + chip
Powerflex bushed
NGK plugs
Brembo MAX discs + EBC greenstuff (Already installed)
Bridgestone Turanza ER 300 Ecopia ZR16 91W
Bilstein B6 Sport shock + Eibach 30mm springs

Sounds good enough? Handling upgrades is most intressting..

And now its breathing nice hot air instead of the cool air the oe unit supplied. – 1hp.

The upside is that it sounds’ stronger.

Still got a cooling pipe from original airbox so its not THAT bad, maybe 0.002 bhp more

Still curious, how much difference is it between JTS and TS exhaust system?

As I understand it they are similar/same cat back. There is quite a bit of variation of the cat layouts across the various TS variants, the JTS is probably the same as the latest TS, the CF3, with the 2 small cats in the down pipes.

Just to put in a comment i would not even look at powerflex bushes due to priceit ~500 for complete car kit
you can however get a complete car kit from Strongflex (polish company sell through ebay) for ~170
the bushes look very good quality as i have a few just dont know what they are like yet
