My take on an R56 JCW N18 vs GP2

Advantages: you can choose the colour scheme, there will be more options and equipment, you can keep the rear seats, and there are more opportunities for personalisation

Disadvantages: you will you need this lot to keep up with a GP2
Sticky tyres
Coilovers, with new front top mounts, new rear control arms, rear anti-roll bar and new drop links all round, proper set up
Lightweight rims, with less offset or spacers
Better seats

But as to the engine, both a JCW and a GP2 could use:
FMIC by Forge or Airtec
DP (and delete-R) by Akrapovic
Ignition Projects coils
Remap by Manic
