there is no safe way to turn up the boost without software. you can't get a free flash, but you can get a free trial, it only last's like 6 hours or something like that. then you will find the money to get it done. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

If you're new to VW's, there really isn't anything you're going to be able to do to 'up the boost' without putting your engine in grave danger.
Go to your local speed shop and get a test flash. I believe it only lasts a few hours, but you can try out all the different versions to see which one you like the best, and it isn't nearly as dangerous and trying to do driveway tinkering without prior experience.
Just my .02. Check out the 1.8T technical forums you might be able to find some of their tricks of the trade to apply for more butt horsepower in the meantime.
