Intercooler, 5%, bigger exhaust maybe another 5%.

That is my guess?

Would need a dino to really get any good facts and I do not have one.

Hi Folks;
    This is a little off topic for a VW forum.  I have been needing a 4
wheel drive. I got a chance to buy a 1983 Mitsubishi Mighty Max turbo diesel
pickup. It has a 2.3 turbo diesel engine.  I think some of you might have
some idea what percentage of increase in power would likely be obtained by
adding an intercooler and a 2.5 or 3 inch straight pipe etc.
