welcome to the dieselforums from one of your friendly forum super moderators. I hope you continue to come back often, to become a valuable member of our forum.

as for your question i would have to say look into the banks or ats turbo kits. as far as what to look for, i would just make sure your fuel system is up to par, and do all your maintenance on the motor and trans. also get yourself some gauges to monitor the performance. you will need an exhaust gas temp gauge, trans temp, and boost gauges at a minimum! I hope this helps you some!
