Yep, that's the ticket! And don't hessitate to ditch the 3LDZ and go with a better turbo, and a larger intercooler. All result in power gains. And once you've done that, crank your boost up to about 1.0 bar. That will bring you up around 360 fwhp with luck. But you already know that.....just couldn't resist laying it all out again. Really transforms the car.
