I've done it in stages on my Td5, and past Td5's. (intercooler, ECU remap, EGR removal which you can make yourself), and my current one had a VGT turbo.

Definitely worth it.
I did have a "sports" type exhaust on the 110 for a while, but took it off as it was too noisy and gave me a headache on long trips, and to be honest, I didn't notice any difference in power once I went back to a standard system.

Maybe a "better" (read: quieter) system with a decent manifold like Allisport do, might release a few more ponies, but mine is plenty powerful and drivable at present so I'll just leave it be.

I did everything but the VNT turbo. Like Jim, I went to a stock like exhaust from the down pipe back after running a straight pipe that was annoying.
My favorite rover diesel set up and running a 1.2 transfer case is no problem
