Shakey, if you are touring, I would suggest you look at the MTQ range. I have had two GU's done, both with great results. They machine both ends of your turbine housing and use a bigger wheel each end. Adjust the fuel pump and the timing. I had already installed a 3" dump pipe and mandrel bent exhaust. I am now getting 104 rwKw and 600 nm. Not sure what the current price for it to get done, but it was competitive. I drove from Melbourne to Toowoomba both times to get it done, as they do all the machining etc, there, drive in 8.00AM, drive out 4.30PM, different wagon........ I do have a slightly bigger than standard I/Cooler. Is yours I/Cooled? Hope this helps. John

Interesting figures. I had mine dynoed at Denco (4.2) and had the timing corrected and with the std turbo and intercooler mine had 114kw at the rear wheels with 520nm of torque. It has a 3" dump pipe and exhaust. Doing the exhaust is probably the best thing we have done so far. Next thing is getting the fuel pump sorted.
