Ford focus tdci rolling coal mod

Hey, I have a 2008 Ford focus tdci, and as much as I love it I just want to make it a silly/unique and fun car. I was wondering what you guys thought of having my Ford focus tdci roll coal, and what the downsides of it are (other than increased fuel economy when switched on of course) so yeah, I was basicly wondering what your thoughts are and how I would go about it/how much it would cost (live in Australia). Thanks.

Other than that I'm considering getting a bigger turbo on it, so if you have any thoughts on that or any simmilar performance mods that would hurt reliability and fuel economy when cruising highway, they'd be appreciated.

Big turbo/intercooler & bigger injectors & a tune to throw more fuel at it.

I like your thinking :) I've been really looking at a tune but they're not too cheap haha

Would really any turbo fit as long as it is sufficiently cooled? Itd be a bit pricey especially since I'll want to tune it.

Same with injectors, really any of these will need a tune haha
Like these resources, will check this out :)

I more-less just want a unique car, no one would expect a little focus to be fast or blow smoke. And big diesel trucks really aren't a thing in Australia haha, and doubt the isb would fit tbh.

Afraid it wouldn't be a good thing, assuming you still have any factory exh. cleaning equipment intact.

You need a straight exh. without anything but muffler to do that.
