I feel compelled to chastise you, but since you're on the right path toward salvation I'll give you some slack. Get her up and running first, sort out any issues that may have resulted from her lack of use, then start down the slippery slope.

If you're going to install one of Brian's muffs, then you'll have to also consider upgrading the turbo since the muff will result in less restriction vs. the stock unit. And if you do that, then you'll certainly want to make sure that your air charge is as cool as it can be, so a larger IC is in order as well. Then, since you'll be tempted to push the envelope, you'll certainly want to entertain an adjustable WUR to fine tune your fuel delivery for max. HP. And after that, how about going with 1.0 bar boost. And don't forget to improve the airflow via a more direct and less restrictive air cleaner/intake system. And of course, tweak your ignition timing to help the bottom end, and maybe even crack open the engine for some better cams. And, when tired of all that, go with EFI. And and and and.

On second thought, just get her dependably running and enjoy the ride as-is.
