Define the brief.
What do you want to achieve? What's the most important factor (fuel economy/speed/torque/budget)?
Unless you can clearly state the problem then you can't find the correct solution..
Speed & torque. I want to be able to cruise along at 60/65 and tackle hills without any real issue - this is the whole point of this. Reliability, I want something I can set of on a journey and trust it will get me there and back. I am not overly concerned about economy.
After that, of course it is budget. I want the simplest, which often equals most cost effective, upgrade path. I also want bang, or let’s say horse power for the buck. There is no point spending X to get Y, when spending a little bit more than X gets me 2xY.
Does that make sense?

then, IMHO you should go with the AGG/ADY option.
once installed it's easy to service, work on etc.. you already have all the fitting kit as you're starting from a diesel.
