I'm thinking this will be the first round of upgrades :


BSH SpeedShop TSI Race Intake (VW, TSI 2.0T)
BSH SpeedShop TSI Race Catch Can - VTA (Audi/VW, 2.0TSI)
DieselGeek SIGMA6 Short Shift Kit (VW, MK6+)
BSH SpeedShop Billet Transmission Mount [Audi/VW 2.0T FSi/TSi]
BSH SpeedShop Billet Engine Mount [Audi/VW 2.0T FSi/TSi]
BSH SpeedShop Race Billet Rear Sway Bar End Links (Audi/VW)

These seem like a pretty good starting point,

I will need to make a decision on coil-overs and sway bars, as well as full exhaust (depending on which turbo route I go)

Any other initial-purchase suggestions?

riopgtmn,
PLEASE don't listen to anyone specific member about a product. As stated in my other post, hang out on the technical sub-forums and read a lot.
I'll help you out with the engine/tranny mount question though, BSH, VF Engineering, and Black Forest Industries make mounts for your car. I'll let you decide which is best.
If you have specific questions about what I have, then shoot me a PM.

Thanks for the advice, Please keep anything coming, I've been reading alot and am pretty excited to get to modding this little car

Am I correct in saying the APR Stage 3 nets the most WHP available as a "kit" without going totally custom.

At the present - Yes. And as APR seems to always state, it's a complete turnkey solution. Or something to that extent.
BSH has a BT kit, but it doesn't come with software.
EuroJet is working on a BT kit that should be really amazing also.

Welcome aboard.

Read this thread before you do anything else: http://golfmk6.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11999


More power isn't always the way to go. If you plan on tracking the car there are more pressing needs.

I think from what i've been reading, My starting mod list above is a really strong starting point, along with a set of http://www.velocitymotoring.com/wheels_v710.html with some sticky tires and some tint.
