Giulietta performance upgrades?

Hi all,
I have had my 1.4 TB Giulietta for around a year now and considering doing a few performance upgrades.
So I would grateful for any advice? I am aware of the obvious exhaust, mapping and intake modifications but just wondering if there is anything else?
The engine apparently produces 120 bhp however I can keep up with my brothers Mini cooper s, which has around 174 bhp and is slighty lighter than the G.
Any response is appreciated

It all depends, there's a MiTo on here with a different turbo. So that is another route but with factory turbo cars the list always looks like this on a street car.

Remap/software
Intake
DownPipe/or turboback
Water meth
Upgraded intercooler
Freeflowing throttlepipe
Maybe cams
Then obviously the obligatory bigger turbo if all the above mentioned mods are not sufficient for you. Bearing in mind its a 1.4, sell up and get a 1.75 and start modding from there...

I was considering getting the QV but as a 18 year old driver I have no chance in insuring it!
Not looking for too much power, just a little more.
These 'chav' boy racers are getting faster cars and I need to keep them behind me

Get a full ragazzon system and a remap and air filtre and see how you feel then. that should cost about 1500
