The AVO 420 is good for 350 whp, possibly more with better fuel. No it's not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

If you search for the 40BB turbo, you will find that that turbo was about as close to the perfect match for the 2.5 engine as there ever could be. Fast spool and good top end power too. Unfortunately the guy supplying them wasn't the best businessman, and not many were made.
