More power in 192 hp with new ECU?

I have just been to Germany and bought a silver RX-8 Revolution with Bose.
It's the 192 hp-version and I would like to have a bit more power.

Are there any tuners who's offering ECU-tuning for this engine?
Do anyone know if there excists turbo or supercharger kits for this model?

Thanks

RX-8 Driver in Norway

Apparently, Powerchips, in CH, offers chiptuning for the High Power RX8. However, the power gain figures he gives are complete fantasy...

No turbo or S/C kit are currently available in Europe. There are plenty of them just finished or in development overseas. One of them will officially be imported to Europe once it's ready. Guess which?

I see.
But aren't the engines in general the same,so that there are a greater hp-gain-potential in the 192 hp-engine?
We have a guy here in town how remanage the ECU for all cars,but I haven't asked him yet.(He have tuned a RX-7 to 700 hp :D )

Engines are not the same; High power has an extra set of intake runners for high engine speed operations. However, an engine tuner who can re-tune the ECU of a high power should be able to do a Std Power too.

Good luck, let us know.

How much gain do you think is possible?20-25?
I've heard that hp-difference between high and low-power engines are less than the claimed 39. Is that correct?

Yes, but only because the HiPow version has yet to prove it's acclaimed power output...
