Theres lots of threads here...you might be able to squeeze a little more power with a different fuel plate. Other than that you might have to buy some injectors - which will probably lead to a bigger turbo in a short time.
what year 12ver i had 96 did basically what youve done i added the 3000 gsk and bought injectors from coal train diesel i think shipped they were 375 and wow is all i can say i sold it shortly after but he was in the process of building me a turbo i think he was going to sell me the turbo for 250 maybe 275 good luck
push the #5 plate full forward(free mod). tune the afc again (every one has a certain amount of turns but imo its best to find out what works for your combination and again its a free mod) did your plate come with a boost elbow? if so install it. if its already on there well how much boost are you getting and what are your egts?
have you done a boost elbow on it that helps out a little, also since it is a 95 correct? you can get a decent set of stock used injectors off of a new 5spd 12v which are 215 injectors cheap that will get you some more fuel. 3k gsk couldnt hurt I would stay away from the idea of just shimming your governor springs I had some major issues with that. also you can move the plate around. good luck hope this helped some. I know I built my 12ver on a budget
