What tune do you have?
Also have u found a 4.11 diff?

As for turbo with the same exhaust side, u can check ddm 2871 (but with e47 fuel to get around 400hp), also wait for hahn 20g to be released, as well as eds new turbo kit

Yes, I found a Differential Kit here in Germany to built the 4.11 technic in my Diff.

Is that the Hahn 20g Turbo ? ( 412RWHP / 441RWTQ Sky Red Line with Hahn Turbo Setup )

If I want to drive E85 I need other injections, right?

that is a hahn turbo.

To run E85 you have to replace the valve seals on your injectors to prevent injector seal failure.

Also if you want to go past 480PS you will need an 5th injector to over spray e85 in the manifold.

I am not sure how if you need to Modify the Downpipe to connect to the Hahn turbo.
They are in the process of revamping their website with new offerings so you should have an answer soon.

I do know that the DDM 2871 Kit that I have
http://www.ddmworks.com/sky/engine/lnf_gt_turbo_upgrade.html
Will work with your existing downpipe and as stated, with E47 you can break 400whp.

If you run E47 vs E85 a good tuner can utilize the stock fuel system.  It's quite robust.  The difference in HP to bump from E47 to E85 is only about 5 HP, so IMHO, it's not worth the jump if you can avoid having to add additional components.
