Default Rear shackles and turning circle

Gday everyone.

I've got an mk triton that i'd like to do a few mods on and would like to hear a few different opinions on. Firstly the rear shackles, i've got a pair of 2" extended shackles for it but am unsure of how it'll handle afterwards and whether it'll affect the load carrying or cornering abilities.

secondly it's got the turning circle of a battleship, can anything be done about this without comprimising tyre size.

and lastly it doesn't go that hard with this standard intercooled turbo, what sort of upgrades are available for bit more stick...............

You can get more power with increased boost and fuel adjusted to suit.

The injection timing can be improved also.

Any reputable diesel place can do these modifications.

I would also highly recommend a free flow 3 inch exhaust.
