Before you start modding, you need to bring up maintenance. The rubber intake tube is usually hard and cracks near the turbo and starts a code issue, that can look like many other issues.
All synthetic oils are a must and attention to intake from carbon buildup.
Brakes, tires, brake fluid change. hubs may need to be replaced, etc.
Timing chain if 100K miles, plus new cam chain guides.
get it running as best you can, before starting on engine mods!

Hi and welcome to the NAM family and congrats on your new to you 08 Mini S!
