Meet other 900 owners and swap tuning tips here. Just post up a short hello in here and tell us about yourself, your car and what you have planned modification wise for it.

A bit of weight reduction will do wonders for the performance they are pretty heavy cars.

How much are you looking to spend on it and what are your aims? I would first of all look at upping the turbo capacity, perhaps a Hybrid OEM turbo or big turbo conversion. You would also need to look into the mapping/timing of the engine to do this right.

What year is it?

It is probably too old for a remap but it is worth asking around. I think that a turbo upgrade and better boost actuator will help with power. Do you know if a 16 valve head will fit on it? If so this would be a good way of increasing the power.
