I mean, if you're interested in what they have to offer vs aftermarket options, then it sounds like you're in a better position to directly ask them

aftermarket there's several options, including but not limited to, bsr, mp, maptun, nordic--for ecu/hardware mods at least
megan racing, hirsch, HR and several other companies offer suspension mods as well

upgrading from linear to arc/aero specs is possible, but costly as well

best,
dave

Yeah, I was going to say you should probably go aftermarket. sounds like this place should be able to help you out significantly with hardware at the least.
good luck
