Your engine has a VNG turbocharger already as standard.

To change this or add a suoercharger on top of, will cost a lot.

The engine and fuel system is not capable of sustained larger increases in power.

Is there some problem with yours?

I just want to add more horsepower to increase the acceleration
GM Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

You can get a bit a bit more about 20% with a software tune, and a full exhaust system.

Do you have diesel tuning shops in your country?

GM Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

I have searched myself now, and found the sdp kit you have mentioned.

A bit of money for the kit.

I would want some guarantees with that.

Think about the mechanical limits of the engine and transmission.
