Airtec do an intercooler specifically for the 1.4T
Enhance performance do a de-cat and exhaust system for the 1.4T
The above should see 190-200bhp when mapped with good quality fuel

As mentioned, it's worth looking at the suspension and brakes because as standard they aren't great. You don't need to go daft to make a nice improvement.

Eibach springs are good without completely destroying the ride comfort like some cheaper springs or coilovers can.
Brakes wise braided lines and fresh fluid will give a slight improvement. Your never going to make a huge difference unless you go for a larger diameter disc really.
Tyres, important and often overlooked. Pointless getting your car to good power/handling then putting budget ditch-finder tyres on :lol:

Great post - eminently sensible! The 150bhp 1.4T has different (larger diameter) brakes from the 100bhp so anyone (like me) considering a remap to circa 150bhp should always look at stopping power but make the mods inside factory parameters. There have been too many accidents caused by the well intentioned fitting powerful disks to the rear of their little Corsa because they look cool compared with drums. The problem is that over braking the rear can induce the car to spin in adverse weather
Totally agree, it's all good looking cool. But when upgrading the brakes get some one who knows what there are doing to spec and fit them as like you say you need the bias so match factory parameters.
