I know this has been discussed before :deadhorse: but I was wondering what steps other T5 owners have taken to get a little more out of the car. Obviously I went with better tires, muffler, and K&N filter. There seems to be no chips/tuning available and I've heard varying reasons for that, which I assume all boil down to tiny turbo.

Has anyone explored a turbo swap? Is there anything compatible with this engine? Obviously internals are something I would worry about...and the high cost of tuning/charger/cooling upgrades lol

Any suggestions are appreciated! I love my car but we always want a little more...

I'm fairly certain a TDI tuning device is available for the T5. I would look into that. Definitely the best cost / performance ratio out there. Several of us run them on our T6's with success. While it's not an elegant solution, it does offer some improvement.

Personaly, my T5 is going under lots of mods (and some not added)
Added
-ERST Air Intake (love it)
-TDI Tuning Box: one of the best improvement in term of power
-IPD rear sway bar and other chassis set up

Coming soon
-DO88 for sure
-P* optimization (kind of reluctant by its cost $1.4k)
-GFB valve for optimizing the turbo and peak

Your T5 is the 4-cylinder 2.0L and OP's is the 5-cylinder 2.5L
