Yeh she is a sweet little truck and I am real happy with the proformance. I test drove it while they tuned it and had them de tune it a little as its still a every day drive truck and with the fuel map he had in it and running 60 psi of boost it was pretty insane.
Even now with running just 45 psi of boost and a de tuned map it spins the wheels in third at over a 100 klm/h.
The truck is back in the shop at the moment to get the front spoiler fitted and a problem I had with the intercooler hoses blowing off.
Also fitting a speed cut as it was still limited to 200 KLM/H which was a pain in the *** as you only got a couple of seconds in 5th before it would hit the limit.
Next mods will be a supra gear box and diff as the standard one will be lucky to last a month or two

Aussiedave.
Philip the guy that built my truck is a Aussie and I am sure he could arrange what ever you need.
He has a new V2 DSM kit that is suppost to be really good. I didnt buy it as the kit I bought was only a few months old. It would put your 3L some where from 220 to 250 HP
