It looks like it's been turbo'd and a Front mounted intercooler added.
The EGR has been blanked too.

Not too much you can do to tweak the known to be slow 2.4. (but by all accounts (including my own) they are a strong engine. start with the usual de cat exhaust,

best to make sure it's running good ( regular service & filters) and check the throttle cable as they can stretch and limit your power.

Some here have added larger air intake from an ACV, added intercoolers, converted them to take a turbo (check out Lumoxs buid thread)... or even dropped the engine out completely for a 1.9tdi golf.

on the very plus side they do run very well on veg oil and at 80p a litre what's not to like?

good luck
