A bigger turbo isnt going to do much for you unless you feed it more fuel. a bigger turbo is only part of the equation. More air + more fuel = more power.

This will be the true medium duty version of the engine. Does it have a P-7100 injector pump? If so, theres lots you can do but you also have to weigh the fact that you want to tow heavy - so you really cant go crazy with the modifications.

As long as it has a 12mm pump and not an 11mm like they put in buses.

If you are talking about an HE351 from a 6.7 Dodge, that would be a nice upgrade. Drawbacks are you would not have the variable vane exhaust brake function and it's a little tricky getting the wastegate to work without the Dodge electronics, but it can be done.
