Default v70 2.4 D5 performance upgrades?

Hi everyone,

Long time lurker, first time poster here!

For the last two years I've been driving an S40 2.4i and have recently upgraded to a 57 plate v70 with the titular 2.4 d5 engine in it.

I've already eyed up some Eibach lowering springs and a front strut brace. I would eventually like to have the car remapped. The crux of my question is: does a stage 2 remap require a better clutch or better turbo? I apologise in advance for my naivety but this is the first time I've had a car that is worth remapping.

I'm also looking at better discs and pads which I'll upgrade regardless of stage one or stage two remap.

If you've made it this far, thanks for sticking with me.
