Please remember it will be a nightmare to carry large items through customs, and excess baggage charges might apply too.

Stage 1 upgrade huh.

My friend is doing his RS and he's got the following as of now; Intake, custom exhaust, greddy boost controller with a HKS blow off valve. Also added a bigger front mount intercooler. Runs his car at around 13 psi. I can't tell you how sweet the blow off sounds at that boost.

You could probably get all of these except for the exhaust from there without problems. Get a customized exhaust here. Should cost you around 55-60k INR including the installation.

I know it will be a nightmare.
I have an empty suitcase (nearly). I can carry a BOV and maybe something else too if lightweight.

Happy modding
How much would a forge BOV cost?

CAI as rightly mentioned by Smokin go for the Carbonio Intake system. If I were you my mods would be Intake+Cat Back+Remap.

Waiting to see what all mods you decide upon. MOD it well.
Actually there wont be mods to the exterior. Just maybe a rear diffuser if easily available and cheap.
What Cat Back would you recommend. It wont be an all out mod like your mugen

i call them up - they are a helpful lot.
on another note - be ready to travel and pick up from store.. which is the best option so locate the store/dealer closest to you geographically.
I'm ready to travel to London to get it. I can get it from places around south of London and London.

How much does the ABD CAI cost? It looks similar to the carbonio cold air intake.

I'm not too interested in a customized exhaust. Planning a built one. Maybe a remus. Though it might have to wait. Depends on budget.

My 2 cents, Abhinav.

For Ph 1 mods, do the following which would also help you scale up in future:

1. Remap, of course
2. Forge Diverter Valve
3. Carbonia Cold Air Intake
4. Forge Turbo Pipe
5. Top and Bottom braces
6. Evo Heat Shield

You really don't require a CAI for phase 1, and can do with a replacement filter. But putting in a CAI, can help you scale up in future.

With respect to exhaust, look at Milteck Catback. It has a nice exhaust tip.

And if you are interested in some exterior add ons, look at Milotec. You can find some cool stuff on SKODA TUNING SHOP for Octavia, Octavia II, Fabia, Roomster, Superb, Felicia : Skoda Tuning = superskoda.com

Happy modding.

Cheers.

300+bhp wont be of much use on a fwd. Moreover, this is gonna be a FI engine which unlike a 300bhp NA machine will produce lots more torque at very low engine speeds.

So dont expect the car to be a good handler or even fun to drive in the lower gears. The only time you will enjoy the car is when you do roll ons in 4th and 5th.

You might wanna reduce the final drive ratio to accomodate the extra power/torque.

How will that help? I think you meant increase the F.D.
Reducing will only make the matter worse (Traction problem).

Not true, assuming the same turbo is retained with an upgraded map it tends to spool quicker.

The RS however requires a lot more fueling to make it a really quick machine.

As for the FWD bit, have known of a few cars with the right rubber on them hardly spin on a good launch and roll through and have very good torque characteristics. A remap is mandatory to start enjoying the car.

This is a universal linguistics problem.
@Shantunu:
When it comes to gear ratio/ FD ratio, higher number = lower gearing
and vice versa, of course.
