I honestly believe that the ports are just not doing you any favors. Although I have head that if you hog out the ports really well, you can see big gains with the right set of cams.

The power your putting out is basically what a stock 2.0L with a VF39,pink injectors,TBE and stock TMIC puts out. I agree with psinuse about the heads. A somewhat easy fix is to slap in a set of used STI cams. They are cheap and plentiful but you do have to block off the AVCS holes. Tap and set screws work.

I would agree with dumdum and psinuse. I'm going to be running a Dom 3.0XTR soon. Will be getting a FMIC after my pistons get broke in. But...I will have: head work, cams, built bottem end, and many many other small upgrades. I would say the Dom 3.0 series is not a turbo for TMIC use.
