So I just got a mk4 jetta 2.0 5spd 115k I have had many Volkswagens and Audis but I have never done any performance mods and this car is just to slow what are some good set ups without having to do to any internal work like pistons, rings and such I would like to do a cam probably the 270 if I do what else do I have to do springs,ecu upgrade, chip????? I also plan on some exhaust work and an intake I guess what I would like to know is what the best bang is for the buck I would like to put around $500 - $600 in to it for now.

well, if you want to stay basic with it then do:
cone filter intake
exhaust
270 cam with upgraded valvetrain
chip

Don't bother with the cone filter, just adds noise. Get a K&N drop-in filter. The rest on the list are a good start, this car will never be real fast, but some upgrades will help the fun factor.

Lose the cone filter as mentioned above.
The rest is good, but no way you will do it all for under $600.
Start with the exhaust. Save up and do the rest at the same time.
