You can only go so far on standard internals before things start bending in ways they shouldn't lol. But with the mods you already have, a remap will be the best way forward, and cheaper than a turbo. A good map could show you between 30 and 40 bhp... Which is enough for most.

Not sure mate to be honest, you'd just need to do some research and see what ppl have done. If you were set on changing the turbo, then you are best to leave the remap until after. Will get the most benefit that way.
