Thanks for asking your question. I will try and help you out.

Is the engine having low power? Or are you just wanting more power?

Can you get me the engine serial number please?

Thanks for the information.

If you are needing more power the best thing to do is have the engine uprated in HP. This can be done with a software change in the ECM and possibly a turbo and injector replacement. It depends on the current hp and serial number as to how high the engine can be increased in power and if iron changes are needed.

The most HP the engine can be uprated to is 430.

Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
