You are right on the verge of needing major work.

Right out of the gate I would add some kind of active cooling to the differential. Obviously the turbo will need changes, Rods should be ok, as long as your 400 number is more likee 410 not 490. Same goes for the crank and block. Look at a better intercooler, bigger turbo, full exhaust, and chip. That alone should take you up to 350hp range. See if you are happy or at least close to happy. If not prepare to drop money.

Have a time frame? I am not a fan of Evolve after they blew up a couple cars a while back. I know lucky is working on ME7/9 but its a ways off. There is standalone but you need this to me street legal. Personally I would focus on the turbo first then ECU. Do you plan to replace the manifold or just turbo?

Same question for V70R MY05 model year 2004.

Intercooler+downpipe+ecu for most effect and still durability?

And

kit like this http://www.phuzzymot...d=9&review=read and add RICA tune or something ?
