May be an unpopular viewpoint here, but I'd leave it alone. You already have a torquemeister with good economy and plenty of mid-range grunt.

Save money and/or spend on suspension/wheels to make a back-roads weapon.

Just my take on it.

if you have the earlier 150hp version i think the rotary pump limits the power available to 180-190 or the 180 version to 200/210
chip, de cat, disable egr etc

A recon pump, to remove the problem area and a remap would net you good gains with little loses. Any more power than that and its head work, custom turbos, larger nozzles, etc etc

nozzles and a remap is the way to go.

V6 nozzles are hard to find, but they are available.

well nozzles are in the end of the injectors. You'd remove the injector, fit the uprated nozzle to it and refit the injector
