200Tdi performance enhancements?

Inspired by a recent post of a gorgeous Series II...I'm thinking about what I can do to my 200TDi d90 to make it more highway friendly. So far I've heard/seen...

- Discovery transmission

- Modify exhaust

- Larger intercooler

I'm a new D90 owner...Anyone have any experience with above? Want to contribute your knowledge to my new project/life obsession? :-)

What transfer case are you running? The 1.4 might help off the line if you are in traffic a lot.

The larger intercooler may help some, but usually is accompanied by IP tuning.

Disco transmission ???

Exhaust mods don't hurt, but what size exhaust do you currently have?

Lots of write ups on upping your power look for it in the search section. You will need to know what you are starting with, R380, what transfer case gearing, stock axle gears?, tire size. A lot will go into it to get more highway reliability.
