I'd personally do nozzles before a tune, that'll give you a taste of what's possible. 205-216 sections should be fine, you might need to raise your injection quantity a bit to keep bottom end smoke reasonable on 216s.

Mec evo or Giles @ performance diesel injection would probably be your cheapest options on this side of the border. Concept1 and CTS also have a no name 205 nozzle that's made in Italy that a lot of people have had good results with.

Sach vr clutch should be fine but agreed a south bend would be ideal for future proofing.

Upgrading to .205 nozzles will give a lot more oomph and possibly not kill your FE either. By doing the nozzles first, it saves one step when getting a tune, and possibly moving to a Stage 3 tune after will provide a huge noticeable difference in power.

Interested in reading what you end up doing. I'm in the same boat but a few less miles (355K). Previous owner did replace the clutch before I got it, but otherwise all other components are original including the turbo.
