MERF-09 is on a distinguished road

Seen a few common rails with Performance Intake & 4" Exhaust & EFI Live tune with stock fuel system & turbo & stock injectors there making 500-525 reliable horsepower.
That about all the horsepower you will want with a automatic transmission.
Also you can add 90 hp injectors this will put you in the 600 horsepower range & will require a triple disk billet torque convertor & a upgraded valve body. Gauges are good the rest is not really needed.
