Well TDI's arent ment to be fast so dont be looking for something insane. They come stock with 90HP and roughly 150lbs/TQ.

There are chips out there that will give you roughly 10-15HP and 30-40TQ. Full exhaust, including downpipe, and bigger injectors(forgot what they are called for the diesels.)

You could also do a intake, but I doubt you'd see any real HP.

Upgrade the turbo. I forget which model it is, but you can make around 190 - 200 whp if tuned correctly.
