Default 9-5 3.0 V6 Tid

Perusing an idea.........................
2002 +
Any good?
I believe they are 150bhp, but with Aeroesque torque levels?
I know its never gonna be a monster but with better intake and exhaust and larger injectors? (not aux fais with oil burners) is 220ish bhp possible? Any ecu upgrades possible?

I would avoid the 3.0Tdi, the good ones are very good but there seems to be a lot of moody ones out there. Typical faults are broken EGR valve that costs a silly amount of money, and even worse a dropped cylinder liner that causes coolant blowout and means a new engine.
